Malaysia may be one of the smaller places on the map, but it is a country unlike most: a diverse, multicultural nation made up of citizens of various races and religions. This unique blend never fails to dazzle travelers from around the world, often making it one of the most visited countries on the map and rivalling many other big names on the planet for tourism.
Malaysia wasn’t always the Malaysia we know and love now. It was much smaller, less culturally diverse, and it was called the Federation of Malaya, consisting only of West Malaysia. That all changed on one historic date – September 16th. Malaysia Day. It is often celebrated in tandem with Hari Merdeka, Independence Day, but both of these days could not be more different.
