Malaysia: A Country Abundant in Cultural and Biological Diversity



Malaysia's multiculturalism and multi-ethnicity have a significant impact on politics. Malay people make up only around half of the country's population, with a minority of Chinese, Indians, and Native Americans. Malaysian Malay, a standard variety of the Malay language, stands as the country's official language. 

If we go deep into the history of the country, early settlements in Malaysia date back 40,000 years, and the country has a long history of both immigrants and natives. The first century CE trade routes between the indigenous Malay tribes, China, and India demonstrated booming trade; this migration also brought Buddhism and Hinduism to the peninsula. Following the establishment of local dynasties by rulers like Langkaasuka and Srivijaya, the Malacca Sultanate ruled the majority of present-day Malaysia in the 15th century, introducing Islam to the area. Malaysia's culture is eclectic and a fusion of eastern and western elements. Malaysia is a beautiful melting pot of traditions and customs that date back generations due to its eclectic population, which represents many ethnic groups. This creates a fascinating juxtaposition with western sensibilities that is delightful to experience.
