    Be The Change 2022 is a celebration led by children, for ALL!

Welcome to Malaysia

To know Malaysia is to love Malaysia - a bubbling, bustling melting pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony.

Our multiculturalism has made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise and home to hundreds of colourful festivals. It is no wonder that we love celebrating and socialising. As for our people, Malaysians are known to be very relaxed, warm and friendly. Geographically, Malaysia is almost as diverse as its culture. 11 states  and 2 federal territories (Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya) form Peninsular Malaysia which is separated by the South China Sea from East Malaysia which includes 2  states (Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo) and a third federal territory, the island of Labuan.

One of Malaysia’s key attractions is its extreme contrasts which add to this theme of ‘diversity’. Towering skyscrapers overlook wooden houses built on stilts while five-star hotels sit just metres away from ancient reefs. Rugged mountains reach dramatically for the sky while our rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to  floodplains teeming with forest life. Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves.
