{ This write-up has been extracted from http://www.tourism.gov.my }

Malays comprise 57% of the population, while the Chinese, Indian and Bumiputeras and other races make up the rest of the country's population.

While Malay is the national language the many ethnic groups also converse in their various languages and dialects, but English is also widely spoken.   Islam is the official religion of the country, but other religions such as Buddhism and Christianity are widely and freely practised.
