Malaysia

Cost of Living

Separated by the South China Sea, Malaysia rests on the edge of two landmasses in two distinct halves. Drawing cultural heritage from India, China, the UK and the indigenous tribes, it is a genuinely multicultural nation that has established itself as one of the most stable and affluent countries in South East Asia. However, unlike its neighbour Singapore, Malaysia remains accessible to all and tradition blends with more Western influences seamlessly to create a secure country that is still as happy amongst the global economic elite as it is to be the home of the wild orang-utans and tribesmen of Borneo.

Joined to the rest of Asia by a small stretch of land near Thailand, peninsular Malaysia (West) carries the capital city of Kuala Lumpur in the south and is connected by bridges to the frenetic island nation of Singapore. In the north, the cities give way to dense jungle and glorious mountains which juxtapose with white beaches and idyllic coves. 500 miles to the East and you come across Eastern Malaysia which makes up the Northern part of Borneo.

Comprising jungle in an overwhelming majority, Eastern Malaysia offers a unique chance to live next door to one of the world’s most exciting jungles, a constant destination for conservationists, scientists, tourist, and volunteers. The Northern states of Sarawak and Sabah flank Brunei and provide the ultimate Malaysian experience. Guiding a traditional perahu boat down the swarming jungle rivers into the heart of the bush, you can expect the mystery of sacred religious rites and the calls of the Malayan tiger to accompany you.

With the luxurious living of Kuala Lumpur in one hand, and the adventure of Borneo in the other, it is difficult to look beyond Malaysia for adventure and accessibility in tandem.
