Malaysia: Mighty Mangroves
Malaysia is a strategically located country in Southeast Asia, and its position on important sea thoroughfares is what led to its prominence as a trading port throughout its long history. It was a particularly important stop for spice and silk traders, thanks to its abundance of resources.
Due to British influence, English is widely spoken in Malaysia, even though it isn’t the country’s official language. Bahasa Melayu is the language that claims that spot, but over 140 languages are spoken throughout Malaysia. It is a diverse country with a unique blend of cultures making it an interesting and exciting place to visit.
