"A typical expat home or apartment in Malaysia typically features modern and stylish furnishings, as well as all the conveniences of modern amenities such as air conditioning, a washer-dryer unit and access to internet and cable TV. Many expat homes come equipped with a large terrace or garden, providing a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for expats and their families. Expat apartments often come with access to swimming pools and gyms, as well as shared recreational areas such as BBQ pits or playgrounds. Security is also a top priority, with most homes and apartments featuring 24-hour security guards providing peace of mind for expats living in Malaysia," commented one expat who made the move to Malaysia.

"We live in a 4 bedroom standalone house [bungalow]. Most expats take either a house or apartment, depending on whether or not they have children, or major security concerns. Apartments have better security and amenities, but are typically smaller. Many houses have pools," remarked another expat in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
