Maritime Southeast Asia


Maritime Southeast Asia

Maritime Southeast Asia refers to the maritime region of Southeast Asia as opposed to mainland Southeast Asia and includes the modern countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei, East Timor and Singapore.[1]

The cultural identity of the region is seen as part of 'Farther India' or Greater India, as seen in Coedes' 'Indianized states of Southeast Asia', which refers to it as 'Island Southeast Asia';[2] while other authorities see it is as partly (or heavily, in the case of Singapore) sinicised, and yet others even suggest its own identity within Austronesia or Oceania.[3]

Maritime Southeast Asia is sometimes also referred to as "Island Southeast Asia" or the "Malay Archipelago".
