Malaysia Quality Of Life
by: Sophia

Malaysia is one of the most friendly and hospitable places in the world. It is what gives Malaysia its charm and appeal. Such an environment is perfect for travel regardless of whether its for business or pleasure. It also makes Malaysia a nice place to live in. Malaysians are generally warm and friendly people so you would be able to fit in rather easily if you’re a foreigner.


Malaysia experiences a tropical climate all year round. The weather and temperature is pretty much uniformed throughout the year. You won’t need to buy clothes for 4 seasons and you’ll be able to enjoy sunlight from about 8am to 7pm. The lovely weather is suitable for people who despise the cold.


The quality of life in Malaysia might be somewhat unsatisfactory for some and some might think otherwise. The living environment is one that is comfortable and laid back but safety is a big issue. The lack of manpower and the consistent rise of petty crimes would scare most away but if you take the necessary precautions, you’ll probably come out unscathed.


Healthcare and medical facilities are up to par. Not exactly world class but sufficient to accommodate the current needs. Besides, in the event that there is a need for world class medical facilities, Singapore is just down south. Healthcare isn’t free though and even the locals would have to pay a reasonable sum to get diagnosed with a fever. If you’re looking for cheap healthcare, the public hospitals such as University Hospital and General Hospital would be the place to go. It might take hours before you are attended to (unless it is an emergency) but it is cheap. If you need to get in and out as quickly as possible then the private medical facilities would be a better bet.


Educational institutions are popping up like unwanted zits. Now there’s no need to study abroad when you can study in Malaysia for half the price and maybe even less. Almost all courses that you can think of are offered in Malaysia. From kindergartens to universities, there is sufficient supply for any child who wishes to learn.


Housing is also not a problem for those who wish to make Malaysia their second home. Living costs are reasonably low which makes Malaysia an economical option for relocation. A wide variety of residential property such as houses and condominiums are available for rent or purchase. For a more guide on residential districts in Klang Valley, check out SD’s District Guide.


Shopping in Malaysia can be quite an adventure for all. If you’re interested in high end designer items or cheap knock offs, this is the place for you. There are shopping malls of international standard and street peddlers too. Malaysia provides a shopping experience at both ends of the spectrum. At an exchange rate of USD1 to RM3.50, a shopping spree in Malaysia might just cause a small dent in your wallet.


Malaysians generally live a laid back life. The only stressful part of the day would probably involve traffic jams and road bullies. Other than that, they are warm, relaxed and friendly. With such a diverse group of people coming from all walks of life, Malaysia provides a travel and living experience that spans from budget to high end.
