From a bird’s-eye view Malaysia spreads out like an endless green carpet: around seventy percent of the land area is covered by some of the world’s oldest and richest rainforest. Rice cultivation forms patch works throughout the peninsula, while the massive rubber and oil palm estates seemingly extend forever. Human settlements cluster along the rivers and shores in Sabah and Sarawak, forming a counerpoint to the impressive natural beauty of these East Malaysian states.

Guido Alberto Rossi and the other photographers have captured all this, as well as coastal regions and the urban landscapes of Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Penang and the other cities of Malaysia.

Kee Hua Chee is Malaysia’s leading travel writer. Trained as a journalist with the New Straits Times, he now travels around the world on assignment and for pleasure. He is a frequent contributor to the inflight magazine of Malaysia Airlines, Wings of Gold.
