Malaysia was created in 1963 through the merger of Malaya (which became independent of Britain on August 31, 1957), the former British Singapore (which later seceded from Malaysia in 1965), and the provinces of Sabah and Sarawak in northern Borneo. The Country is divided into two main regions 650 kilometers apart, separated by the South China Sea: Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia (Sabah and Sarawak). Peninsular Malaysia borders Thailand to the north and Singapore to the south. Sabah and Sarawak border Kalimantan (the Indonesian part of Borneo) and Sarawak surrounds the tiny enclave of Brunei. The peninsula's west coast borders the Andaman Sea (Strait of Malacca). The east coast of the peninsula, Sabah, and Sarawak all adjoin the South China Sea.
