As for Malaysia Asia, we have been traveling around the country visiting some of the unique indigenous tribes of Malaysia over the past few years and documenting them for our stories.

There are also over 50 different tribes and sub-tribes found all over Malaysia too, so to see them all would be a challenge, but to date, we have seen about half of them which a majority are found in Sabah and Sarawak on Borneo Island.
