If you didn’t already think of Malaysia as one of the most beautiful countries in the world, you will now.
Split by the South China Sea, Malaysia is like two countries in one—Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo—with islands thrown in as an added bonus. Throughout the Southeast Asian nation you’ll find towering mountains, pristine beaches, limestone caves, and some of the most beautiful tea plantations in the world.
