Living in Malaysia

Malaysia is an exciting place to live and work. It is well-developed in comparison to some other countries in South-East Asia, and offers a decent standard of living. The capital, Kuala Lumpur, is a commercial city with busy shopping malls, a cosmopolitan range of restaurants and lively markets. It's also a great base for travel around Asia because of its road, rail and air links. Malaysian cuisine combines elements of Chinese and Indian food; a wide range of Western foods are also available. Malaysia has a year-round hot climate with an annual monsoon season.
