Malaysia is an exotic fusion of Chinese, Indian and British influences, whereas Indonesia, best known for the beaches of Bali, is made up of a myriad of islands and ethnic groups. Indo-China - Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos - is a region of smiles and serenity inextricably interwoven with the Buddhist heritage.
