i'm a Malaysian here. i'm curious whether people know where my country is. i used to chat online with people and when asked where i'm from, i tell them i'm from Malaysia, some of the people have no idea where it is or nvr heard of it before. So have you been to Malaysia, if yes did you enjoy your trip? which part of Malaysia did you go? how do you find it, beautiful, fun, interesting? what was your experience? if you're malaysian, have you been to any other states for holiday? how do you find it? beautiful place or island? the best place that i like is Sabah, EAst Malaysa. there're a lot of islands that you can go, and the water is crystal clear. i only managed to go to one island which is Sapi Island, i really enjoyed it there:)

I'm a malaysian so in this case I certainly know where my country is located :D From my personal point of view, I think Malaysia is under high development. Although there were a few 'Visit Malaysia Year' programmes few years back, people around the world still do not know where or what Malaysia is!? I hope the authorities especially Ministry of Malaysia Tourism will do something about it.

I haven't been lucky enough to visit Malaysia yet but will one day! I work in travel and Malaysia is asked for quite a lot so quite surprising people don't know where it is when you say where you're from. I guess I am just used to it being common knowledge in my line of work that the country exists if that makes sense! Also the countries airline is one of the only 4 five star airlines of the world so again that puts the country on the map a bit! It does look beautiful and I will definietly be going one day when money allows!!

Malaysia is located in south east Asia. It is the piece of land that sticks out between India and Viet Nam, Thailand and Cambodia. Here is a web site to help answer your questions. http://www.geographia.com/MALAYSIA/

thanks for giving the link. sometimes i don't know whether to be ashamed that some people don't know where my country is, so have you been to Malaysia before?

Quoted bobmnu: "It is the piece of land that sticks out between India and Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia." Really??? Where exactly you meant by between India Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia??? I don't really think so. Malaysia....if you actually looked on the world map, you would see that it located next to land of smile - Thailand, right under Thailand. Definitely not between India, Vietnam or Cambodia. And in fact, for your information, Malaysia and those countries (except Thailand) are not even connected. So how could it be sticked out between them? And as far as I know, Malaysia is at least two or three hours away from those country - and may be even longer to India - and that is by plane.

HahaI think my sis was just being polite, hahaIf anyone has heard of Thailand & Singapore, Malaysia is just in between them. Maybe bobmu was referring to Indonesia?

I have been to Malaysia, yes. To Kuala Lumpur and Penang. Very impreesed. KL is certainly a very beautiful City, and the skytrain is very nice. But, I have not been to Sabah and Sarawak yet. That's where I want to go next time. I know the places are very beautiful too.

thanks for commenting on my country. im so proud of it. You've got to see Sabah and Sarawak. As for Sabah, there are a lot of islands that you can go and also the famous Mount Kinabalu, as well as hot springs. And you can see long houses in Sabah and Sarawak. There are nice beaches here as well, but you've to know where it is, because sadly the sea here in certain places are quite polluted :( Anyways, hope you'll have a great trip the next time you get to Malaysia :)
