      ... and ethnicities all living on one island together, and fairly harmoniously too nowadays... Indian, Chinese (at least 45% of population), Malay, Thai are the main ones. But there are also many Portuguese people (known as "Eurasians" by the locals) who were the result of many a Portuguese-Malay love affair back during the island's colonial period.
