A Malaysian Experience

Straits Of Malacca

The Straits Of Malacca In Beautiful Malaysia

Malaysian Travel

Perhaps one of the most extreme examples of beauty can be found in the Strait of Malacca. This magnificent waterway provides the connection between the Andaman Sea, also known as the Indian Ocean, and the South China Sea, which is a part of the Pacific Ocean. This breathtaking strait runs between Sumatra, an island of Indonesia, and Peninsular, Malaysia. The very most Southern part of Thailand forms the border on the east. With Sumatra on the West and Peninsular and Thailand to the east, it is a major waterway connecting many different cultures and countries. The strait consists of 25,000 miles making it a waterway to be noted.

There can be no better place to begin your Malaysian experience than on the shores of the Malacca Strait.  It does not matter if you come when the sun is shining, or when it is setting, beauty is everywhere.

The Strait of Malacca combines with the Singapore Strait providing the main route between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. There is no shorter way to move tankers between Japan in Asia and the Persian Gulf.

Central Market Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Central Market Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

The life of this iconic market began in 1888. It was then that Yap ah Loy, the Kapitan of the city at the time, built the wet market. This market served as a central landmark in colonial Kuala Lumpur. In the modern city of Kuala Lumpur this market continues to take an important place in the lives of the people. In the 1980s, the Malaysian Heritage Society campaigned to have the market relocated, saving it from almost certain demolition.

A Malaysian Experience - A person standing next to a body of water - Boating

Boating Through The Mangroves

Boating through the Mangrove Jungle in the Negeri Sembilan Peninsula Malaysia is an incredible experience. While the mangroves only make up about two percent of Malaysia, they are home to many species of mollusk, shrimp, crab, and a variety of other small fish. These are a major food source for the people living in the coastal communities. These dense and protected forests also provide a place for many different species of fish to hatch and grow into adults safely. Many of the fish found in the coral reefs, had their start in the mangroves. Shrimp, crab, and a variety of other small fish all had their beginnings in these dense waters.

Mangrove jungle in Malaysia
The mangroves are the salt loving rain forests of the tropical seas. Trees and shrubs that love to exist in salt water call this dense tropical forest by the sea home. Not only is it one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems, it is one of the most valuable. It also serves to protect the communities along the coast from many natural disasters. It certainly has earned a special place in the hearts of the local communities. The health of the community is often measured by the health of the mangrove.
The Seedlings Are Ready
The amazing mangroves are filled with seedling, ready to drop off and take root. This process continues and keeps the mangroves thick and lush. As the mangroves replenish themselves year after year, so their value as a storm break for the main island increases. The thicker the mangrove, the less that any tropical storm will harm the villages that depend on them for protection.
Gathering The Seedlings
Gathering The Seedlings 
On occasion, someone comes along to help the seedlings out. Eventually, the seedlings will fall into the water and reproduce on their own, but a little help assures that more of the seedlings take root and grow. Sometimes it is just nice to receive a helping hand, as each seedling is very important to the ecosystem.
