Malaysia: The Bolehland

With a territory that measures 330,803 square kilometers more than half of which are forest lands that is home to numerous endemic species of plants and animals, Malaysia is one of the 17 megadiverse countries on Earth. 

Malaysia's territory consists of thirteen states and three federal territories. These federal territories consists of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Labuan. The country is multi-ethnic and multi-cultural. Majority of its population are Malays, its minority consists of people with Chinese or Indian descent. There are also numerous indigenous people that live in the different  parts of the country. Regardless of these differences, its local inhabitants are collectively referred to as Malaysians.

The name Malaysia came from a combination of the Malay word "melayu" and Latin-Greek suffix "-sia". The word melayu in Malay was derived from the Tamil word malai which means mountain and ur which means city.
