Some things about the country Edit
Malaysia Malaysia is situated in Southeast Asia and is surrounded by Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei. It became British colony from 18th century till 1957. With Malay being its mainstream culture and other cultural influences from Chinese, Indian, Persian, Arabic and British, Malaysia is indeed a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-lingual country. On August 31, 1957, it achieved its independence and became part of Commonwealth. This is why English is one of the most spoken languages in the country, while its official language is Bahsasa Malaysia (standardized Malay language). Being a multicultural country, Malaysian cuisine is more a fusion type, i.e. Malay-Chinese cuisine, and is a more spice style. Like its neighborhood countries, i.e. Indonesia, Thailand & Brunei, Malaysia has lots of natural resources, forests and beaches. In addition to these natural attractions, a hill top casino resort, Genting Highlands (Fun City above the Cloud) the only legal casino in Malaysia, is available to the visitors that are seeking gambling excitements. All these attractions, together with the tropical climate, make Malaysia a popular place for people that are seeking for relaxing vacations.
