TEMPO.CO, JakartaMalaysia has been declared the most loved country in Asia, according to a new survey by American financial site, Insider Monkey. The nation, known for its diverse mix of cultures, defeated Singapore and several popular destinations among Western tourists, including Thailand and Japan.

Insider Monkey compiled a list of Asian countries and ranked them based on several metrics including respect, friendliness, diversity, democracy, and the number of foreign tourists. The survey revealed 20 Asian countries that are the most popular vacation destinations.

Malaysia topped the list, followed by Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates. Meanwhile, Indonesia is ranked 12th.

According to the site, Malaysia is a great example of unity and friendliness.  “It is a preferred destination for tourists eager to immerse themselves in the diverse cultures of its local communities. Malaysia's hospitality and friendliness enhance this cultural exploration, making it a memorable experience for visitors,” as quoted from the website.

The number was dominated by tourists from Singapore, reaching 8.3 million, followed by Indonesians, Thais, Chinese, and Bruneians, according to news site Focus Malaysia.
