Malaysia Introduction

Malaysia is a country in Southeast Asia. It consists of two regions about 650 kilometres apart, which are separated by the South China Sea. The regions are Peninsular (formerly West) Malaysia, and Sarawak and Sabah (formerly East Malaysia), on the northern part of the island of Borneo.

Malays and Chinese people make up most of the country's population. Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia's capital and largest city.

A Short Background

Malaysia was created in 1963 through the merging of Malaya (independent in 1957) and the former British Singapore, both of which formed West Malaysia, and Sabah and Sarawak in north Borneo, which composed East Malaysia.

The first three years of independence were marred by hostilities with Indonesia. Singapore separated from the union in 1965.
