Malaysia for everything except 'people', if you mean how friendly they are, and 'nature scenery', although it's not like Indonesia is much 'better'/different.

Lol nice one but i would put Nightlife (Entertainment) Indonesia, and in terms of scenery depends on what kind of scenery so i need to OP to be more specific, there are what the other ones had that the other doesn't like for example Borobudur vs Penang old town.

Not that different? you mean the overly palm plantation scenery in Malaysia? yeah but you won't get to see this in Malaysia: http://travel.spotcoolstuff.com/wp-c...9/01/bali1.jpg

Obiviously the natural scenery of Indonesia are superior, with vast amount of volcanoes, thousands of islands and beautiful marine parks like Raja Ampat.

Malaysia has the northern part of Borneo, don't forget, including Kinabalu/the Crocker range, beaches, coral reefs, rainforest, and of course the massive Niah and Mulu caves. Virgin limestone karats, rain forests.etc are a highlight of the peninsula, so it's not like Malaysia misses out.

Hmm your writing style reminds me of someone, but it might just have been me.

Anyway Indonesia still wins, the rainforest of Borneo are rivaled by its counterpart in the south, Sulawesi and Papua, Papua and Sulawesi even have this cute tree kangaroo: http://wild-facts.com/wp-content/upl...e-kangaroo.jpg nawwwwwwww. Indonesia is the well known spice isles that offers much more divers biodiversity ranging from its exotic spices to deep rainforest and huge raflesia flower.

Biodiversity: Indonesia > Malaysia

Landscapewise Indonesia have thousands of mountains, Kinabalu mountain are nothing as comparison of its Indonesia's hundreds of volcanoes:

"Hobits" cave in Flores: http://humanorigins.si.edu/sites/def...on-2008_lg.jpg
Toraja landscape: http://www.jumbo.at/Asien/800/Torajaland_Langhaus.jpg
Rinjani: http://www.asiaworldindonesia.com/wp...njani-view.jpg
Bromo: http://bromoflexible-tour.com/wp-con...nung-Bromo.jpg
Dieng Plateau: http://images.fineartamerica.com/ima...-u-hamburg.jpg
Three colored lake (lake kelimutu: http://save-our-green.com/allpost/wp...eKelimutu3.jpg

And they really are just a few out of the 17000 islands.

Landscape: Indonesia > Malaysia

Beaches, Indonesia has plenty of small isles and the beaches on the off beaten track are plenty and undiscovered all clean and white sanded, Raja Ampat is also arguably the king of all diving spots:



So again Indonesia > Malaysia on this matter, your statement saying Indonesia and Malaysia's natural scenes being almost similar is simply too ignorant, Indonesia is huge diverse archipelago consisting isles and volcanoes compared to Malaysia that mostly sticks with the mainland and north borneo only.

^ I agree Indonesia wins in biodiversity and diversity of scenery, but I'm also talking about accessibility. It's way easier for tourists to see the wild parts of Sarawak and Sabah versus Kalimantan. It's hard to access Sulawesi, or West Papua. Most of Indo just isn't that accessible for tourists, more the adventurous type. Malaysia is still a mega-diverse country, and boasts almost as much as Indonesia is a smaller area.
