Geography

Southeast Asia consists of two geographic regions: the Asian mainland, and island arcs and archipelagoes to the east and southeast.

The mainland section consists of Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia (or to be more precise, Peninsular Malaysia).

The maritime section consists of Brunei, East Timor,[1] Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Singapore.

Definitions of “Southeast Asia” vary, but most definitions include the area represented by the countries:

  • Malaysia – multicultural country covering the skyscrapers of KL and the jungle headhunters of Borneo
  • Myanmar (Burma) – military dictatorship open to the adventurous traveller
  • Philippines – freewheeling former Spanish and American colony with over 7,100 islands and beautiful tropical beaches
  • Singapore – clean and orderly island-city state
  • Thailand – the most popular destination in the region
  • Vietnam – firmly marching down the long road to capitalism
