Every year hundreds of thousands of expats and foreign students enter Malaysia. They seek a home for rent in places Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and Subang.  Malaysia is fairly a beautiful place for foreigners to live and experience. The affordability, cost of living, and value are amazing. At the same time living in Malaysia is a fascinating experience where cultures and different racial backgrounds meet. 

Malaysian real estate agents are no strangers to foreigners. Over the past years, more and more companies have actively worked to find the best homes for foreigners in Malaysia. Fortunately for a lot of people, there is a home for every budget in this beautiful country. Whether you are looking to live on a stringent budget of 200 USD per month or more than 1000 USD, there is an option for you. 

A lot of foreigners choose common areas of Malaysia and tend to stick together as a community. They commonly rent in places like Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is famous for all the right reasons. It has the perfect nightlife, amazing amenities, well-connected transportation system, day and night eateries, flavourful food, and most importantly, luxurious and affordable condominiums and apartments. If Kuala Lumpur is your not typical cup of tea there are so many other beautiful places to look out for in Malaysia. 

Many also seek out rentals in the heart of Petaling Jaya where so many families and businesses men/women live. A large sector of the working employees moves to petaling Jaya as factories and businesses are strategically located around Petaling Jaya. 


If a small business hub is not what you are looking for, Malaysia also has the beauty of Bangsar and Ampang to watch out for. Both have a large influx of foreigners who are looking for nice simple neighborhoods filled with greenery and endless amenities. They both are extremely convenient cities to watch out for and are perfect for families that are looking for a quaint family life with their kids. With good international schools and universities nearby along with easy navigation on the road, what more one could ask for? 

Next, we have one of the best out of the cities in Malaysia. Damansara Height. With exclusive houses looking like pure luxury, this is one of the safest and convenient cities to live in. It might be on a little more expensive side compared to PEtaling Jaya but it is one of the most sought out. Luxury is spoken well through high-end condominiums, well-built bungalows, and penthouses. 

No matter where you go in Malaysia, you will be spoilt for choices. The final decision on where to rent and live is dependent on your wants and needs. If you want the ultimate city life and have the working girl experience, set your heart in Kuala Lumpur. If you are looking for a long-term place where you could relax with your family, stroll around and enjoy a nice day out in the park then go to the likes of Bangsar. Currently, the MCO has restricted a lot of our options but once it is over, we are free to move to our dream cities!
