Malaysia is situated seven degrees north of the equator in Southeast Asia. The northern part of Peninsular Malaysia borders Thailand. To the east is the South China Sea, to the south is Singapore and to the west are the Straits of Melaka.

Malaysia has a warm and humid climate. The humidity is about 80% all year round and temperatures range from 21 to 32°C. The climate is affected by the northeast and southwest monsoons, tropical winds that alternate during the course of the year.

It is home to about 15,000 species of flowering plants and trees, 600 species of birds and 210 species of mammals. The Malaysian government has set aside more than 1.49 million hectares to protect them from development and has enacted legislation to save Malaysia's precious rainforest and its rare wildlife.

Malaysia plays host to an amazingly diverse range of scuba destinations, from cavorting with turtles and swirling tornadoes of barracuda in Sipadan Island to the pristine coral atoll and hammerhead sharks in Layang Layang.
