The West Indies are a large group of islands that separate the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean.
Spain, when Columbus' mistake was discovered, (pardon the pun) renamed them the West Indies, to distinguish them from the Spice Islands in the Pacific Ocean, (the East Indies) which we now call Indonesia.
Today the West Indies, better know as the Caribbean, is comprised of many island countries, dependencies and territories, and (as a group) remain one of the premier tourist destinations on the planet.
Indies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (529 words)
The Indies or East Indies (or East India) is a term often used to refer to the Malay Archipelago [1], in contrast to the West Indies, which refers to the Caribbean.
In a wider sense, the Indies is also used to describe lands of South and Southeast Asia, occupying all of the former British India, the present Indian Union, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and also Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, which was last called the Dutch East Indies before independence.
Oftentimes, the East Indies are named after their colonizer, hence, British East Indies is India and Malaysia, Netherlands East Indies is Indonesia, and Spanish East Indies is the Philippines.
