Malaysia has a tendency to confuse some travelers, as the territories were fairly-recently brought together under the moniker of a federal constitutional monarchy. Not only is Malaysia made up of what used to be seperate countries and/or territories, the two major land masses are also separated by the South China Sea. These two land masses are now known as Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo.
Malaysia is one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world, outside of Tropical South America. The area is home unique flora, fauna, and marine animals, and the lush tropical forests have been used in many movies and travel documentaries because of its balance between modern architecture and untouched jungles.
