It is a paradise on Earth! It is about Malaysia they say: "The earth, untouched by time"! And this is partly true, because Malaysia by 70% is covered by forests. Millions of years ago a glacier, that changed climate of the Northern Hemisphere, did not reach these places. On the island of Borneo rainforests in their original form have preserved with thousands of rare species of plants, trees, insects, birds and mammals. But along with the exuberance of nature, there are cities, elegantly fitting into it. Despite the appearance of modern highways and skyscrapers, they still resemble the quiet provincial towns.
