"Expatriates and digital nomads in Malaysia enjoy an exciting and vibrant lifestyle. The country is filled with diverse cultures, religions, and attractions, offering plenty of opportunities to experience something new. Malaysians also tend to be incredibly friendly and welcoming, making it easy to make new friends. Expats and digital nomads can get around the country easily with its well-maintained transportation network, allowing them to explore and take in the sights. The cost of living is also relatively affordable, meaning expats and digital nomads can enjoy life here without breaking the bank. With its pleasant climate and beautiful scenery, Malaysia is the perfect destination for expats and digital nomads looking for a unique and fulfilling lifestyle," remarked another expat in Malaysia.
"Petaling Jaya, unlike the neighbouring Kuala Lumpur is more residential but a lot of multi nationals are located in this town as well. Lots of families prefer shopping in the weekends. And going out for food! Lots of food and the range is very diversified and international," said a member in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.
