Random Sand Fact

Did you know that sand is not only transported far by wind and water but also exported and shipped worldwide?

Malaysia, known for its pristine beaches, plays a key role in the global sand trade. As one of the world’s major sand exporters, Malaysian sand is more than a coastal treasure; it’s a key ingredient in construction and land reclamation projects worldwide.

Malaysian sand is at the heart of many global projects, from constructing skyscrapers in Hong Kong and the Middle East to expanding Singapore’s landmass.

When you next see a concrete building or pass a road under construction, remember: the sand in it might have started its journey in a distant part of the world.
