Malay Peninsula - January 6th, 2012

This wide-swath ASAR image shows the Malay Peninsula (or Thai-Malay Peninsula), a peninsula in Southeast Asia (visible in its entirety in the full image). The land mass runs approximately north-south and, at its terminus, is the southern-most point of the Asian mainland. The area contains the southernmost tip of Burma, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, and Southern Thailand.

The image shows the ridges and contours of the Titiwangsa Mountains, part of the Tenasserim Hills system, that form the backbone of the Peninsula. They form the southernmost section of the central cordillera which runs from Tibet through the Kra Isthmus (the Peninsula’s narrowest point) into the Malay peninsula.
