Located in Southeast Asia, the country of Malaysia is split between a peninsula and a small portion of an island near Indonesia. Malaysia was under British rule from the 18th century until it gained its independence in 1963. British influences are apparent through the architecture and parliamentary system as well as the tradition of tea. Kuala Lumpur is the capital, and is home to many of the hotels in Malaysia that serve high tea.
