Malaysia is like a hidden treasure, for both students and tourists. Let’s be honest: when you use an architect to design your flag, it means you take things very seriously. Also, having the biggest roundabout on Earth, a thriving oil and gas industry, and a total of 878 islands aren’t a bad sign either. Did we mention that shoe designer Jimmy Choo and actress Michelle Yeoh are Malaysian?
