Most of Malaysia's remaining rainforests are found on the island of Borneo—peninsular Malaysia's primary forests are presently limited to a few national parks. The extent of the forests of Borneo (Sarawak and Sabah) was seriously reduced during the 1980s and 1990s when large amounts of timber were exported from the states of Sabah and Sarawak.

Despite these losses, today Malaysia has a number of forest-oriented tourist destinations including Danum Valley in Sabah and Taman Negara in peninsular Malaysia. Most of these pictures were taken in these locations. Malaysia is also known for its world-class snorkeling and diving both off the peninsula and the island of Borneo.
