Leopardfish  Country Guide

Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Malaysia has become a popular Asian destination for western expatriates. The country includes two very distinct geographic regions divided by the South China Sea: East Malaysia and the Mainland Peninsula. Expats have easy access to exotic jungles and island getaways. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital city and home to many internationals is full of great restaurants, shopping malls and nice hotels. Western goods are also generally readily available here. Additionally, while the official language is Malay, most retailers are able to converse in English. Lastly, the expat should remember that Malaysia is primarily a Muslim country. Public respect for Islamic moral and cultural values is suggested.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

One can live very inexpensively in Malaysia. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 analysis, Malaysia is well below the international average in living costs. Accommodations, transport, restaurants and recreation are all cheap. Groceries and Internet expenses are average and the only items on the high end are clothing and alcohol. Without a question, the western expat can live very comfortably in Malaysia (inclusive of maid serve) and still have plenty of money left over to put into savings.

Climate

Malaysia does not have extremes of temperature, but rather consistent temperatures of between 20  to 30 degrees Celsius. In the East of the country the rainy season runs between November and February, with August being the wettest period on the west Coast. Peninsular Malaysia where Kuala Lumpur is located has two distinct Monsoon periods from March to April and from October to November. When the monsoon occurs it will rain for an hour or so, but when it stops it’s over and it does not inhibit daily life.
