Malaysia is a top Southeast Asian tourism destination, a federal constitutional monarchy consisting of thirteen states and three federal territories. It is separated by the South China Sea into two regions, Peninsular Malaysia (West Malaysia) and Malaysian Borneo (East Malaysia). Malaysia shares land borders with Thailand, Indonesia, and Brunei, and sea borders with Singapore, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The capital city is Kuala Lumpur, while Putrajaya is the seat of the federal government.
Today's Malaysia has its roots in the Malay Kingdoms which became subject to the British Empire in the 18th century up to 1957. Malaya united with Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore to form Malaysia on 16 September 1963, but less than two years later in 1965, Singapore became an independent city state.
Since independence, Malaysia has had one of the best economic records in Asia, with GDP growing an average 6.5% for almost 50 years. The economy has traditionally been fuelled by its natural resources, but is now expanding in the sectors of science, tourism, commerce and medical tourism. ( Source: Wikipedia )
