Sundaland Map
The Southeast Asia we know today was a very different place 10,000 years ago. Over the course of the last million years or so, a series of mini Ice Ages resulted in the periodic rise and fall of sea levels, which led to the islands of Singapore, Sumatra, Java, and Borneo occasionally being connected to the Malay Peninsula by a land bridge to form a continent known as Sundaland. Use the buttons in this section to see how changes in sea level affected the connectivity of the various Southeast Asian landmasses.
