Malaysia Flag

Malaysia (also called Malaysia in Austria) is located in Southeast Asia. Malaysia consists of two parts, namely the western part on the Malay Peninsula and the eastern part on the island of Borneo. Both are separated from each other by the South China Sea.

West Malaysia borders Thailand in the north and Singapore is located in the south on an offshore island. East Malaysia borders on Indonesia to the south and the Sultanate of Brunei is enclosed by Malaysia in the north.

Malaysia is a country rich in natural resources and raw materials (tin, rubber, palm oil, petroleum). Rapid industrial development has taken place since the early 1980s. Malaysia is economically and politically one of the most stable countries in Southeast Asia, in which the convergence of tradition and modernity, Islam and capitalism is propagated. As a result of this reorientation, the country underwent a fundamental change from a previously majority agricultural state to a technical and capital-intensive industrial location with high development potential.

Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur

The capital of Malaysia and also the most important city of Malaysia is called Kuala Lumpur. Here people live in a modern city that, at first glance, does not differ much from other large cities in the world. There are skyscrapers, bank buildings and many high-tech companies have their headquarters here. All of the world’s expensive fashion brands can be found in the shopping malls.

Kuala Lumpur means “muddy estuary”. Doesn’t sound particularly inviting! The city was in a river basin of two rivers. Many mosquitoes plagued the few people who lived there and the whole area was infested with malaria. In the meantime, however, KL has around 1.6 million inhabitants and continues to grow.
