The state's many natural attractions, nature reserves, and national parks, are home to an overwhelming range of animal and plant life, including the famed proboscis monkey. Off the coast, dive spots beckon many tourists, who come to explore the rich marine environment in protected areas. Historically a very culturally diverse part of the country, the towns and villages offer heritage museums, vibrant architecture, and cuisine that takes inspiration from the wider region.
