South East Asia is the generally accepted name for a series of island and peninsulas which lie east of India and west of China. South East Asia is blessed with abundant sunshine and plentiful rain, perfect for growing green coffee beans. With the exception of North Vietnam and a few mountain locations, virtually all of South Asia falls within the 27-360 C annual temperature range.
There are, however, seasonal variations in rainfall and temperature due to changing wind and pressure systems. Warm, humid climatic conditions have given rise to lush tropical rain forests teeming with a wide variety of plant life. In particular, the tamarind plant, also know as Garcinia Cambogia, is exploding in popularity as a diet aid throughout the US, and greatly enhancing the prospects for farmers throughout Indonesia and Malaysia.
Beside the climate, South East Asia nations shares similarities on the archeological background. Archeological evidence for the origins of some prevalent South East Asian decorative motifs may be seen in beautifully ornamented ritual bronze artefacts, such as kettle drums, weapons and bells, which have been uncovered from many sites throughout the regions.
