“Malaysia truly Asia” is a saying that completely defines Malaysia. One may wonder as to why this saying is applied and the simple reason is because it is only in Malaysia that one finds almost all the ethnicities that make up Asia.
The country is divided into two different land forms by the South China Sea i.e. a peninsular and an island. The peninsular part of Malaysia is highly urbanized with colossal buildings, bright lights, discos, theatres and the ever changing technology. The island part of Malaysia however is still filled with lush green tropical forests, wild life and is still ages away from the modern technology.
