Accept Malay Peninsula? I think it's the more obvious answer to your "peninsula" clue.

Yeah, because it's focusing more on Thailand than the Indochina Peninsula.

Colosseum and Coliseum are both correct. Colloseum, however, is not. :)

I'm always fascinated by the fact that "pyramid" works. "Giza pyramid"? No. But "pyramid".

I could not tell two pyramids apart based only on a satellite image and I'm not sure there are many that can.

not shaped quite the same. Crete gets narrower both to the east and west ends before thickening up again, plus it's got a little "foot" sticking down on the bottom and some antennae sticking up on the left (always looked like a slug to me). Additionally, if looking straight on at the globe Crete is more "level" whereas Java is tilted up at the left side, and Crete does not have any other islands so close - Java is virtually touching Sumatra to the west and Bali to the east. They're quite a bit different if you look at them both side by side.

Many quizzes only allow Indochina for Indochina. Please accept Indochinese or at least Indochinese Peninsula. It's just as correct.

It's not so common to see such a drop between the third and the second least guessed answer. At this moment it's a 32% difference. Between the third and the least guessed: 36%.
