Reasons to move to Malaysia


The food in Malaysia is some of the richest and most aromatic in the world. After centuries of different cultures moulding Malay cuisine, today the country enjoys a unique flavour of spices, herbs, and everything fragrant in between. Many iconic dishes blend lemongrass, coconut milk, chilli and shallots, and can be spicy! It’s hard to resist Malaysian food, especially when you can smell its mouthwatering scent from across the street.

Low cost of living

Malaysia is a very cheap place to live with food, rent, utilities and shopping being extremely affordable. It is widely considered to be one of the cheapest places for expats to live, with high-quality goods and services available at low cost. You can find products in local markets or in shopping malls, and there is plenty of variety.


Malaysia has a colourful cultural history with plenty for newcomers to discover. Locally, you can explore rainforests, mountains, caves and villages, and being nestled in Asia, travelling to nearby countries is relatively easy and cheap. You can drive to Singapore and back in a day or even fly to Indonesia, Brunei or Thailand for a quick trip!

Home ownership

Home ownership in Malaysia is a lot easier than other Asian countries, with foreigners able to purchase land, commercial property, residential property, condominiums, apartments, villas and more. As long as you meet the minimum threshold in each state, you will be able to purchase property.
