One of the perks of moving to the city is the ease of movement. The public transport system is cheap, safe and highly reliable, with a network of services connected different areas of KL and its suburbs. Good public infrastructure in this case also means highways and roads that are well-serviced and pleasant to drive on, provided there is no traffic.

Kuala Lumpur is a fast-paced city where work tends to be at the centre of life. The city is always looking for new talent and skills. People who have ambition and drive tend to thrive in a city like KL. Foreigners who work in the city are often hired remotely or arrive by transferring from a foreign office to the Kuala Lumpur one. As an expat in KL, you are more likely to find a job in the above-mentioned ways, if your move isn’t based on precisely that, in the first place.

Ranked 2nd in the world in terms of affordability for students, Kuala Lumpur is a thriving centre of educational excellence and student diversity. The city is home to training centres, universities and colleges that offer foundation courses, diplomas, undergraduate degrees and postgraduate courses that are locally accredited and internationally recognised.  Kuala Lumpur is notable for how welcoming it is to foreign students from across the world. Here, you will have the opportunity to meet people of all nationalities and backgrounds while gaining a world-class education.

The city of Kuala Lumpur offers a wide range of accommodation options. Many expatriates tend to go for condominiums or luxury apartments when looking for central accommodation while those who want a bit more space look into the suburbs for townhouses and villas.

Kuala Lumpur’s combination of nature, culture, gastronomy, and infrastructure means that you will find something new to try, a spot to hang out, or something to taste at every moment of your life there. The best part is that the city has something to offer for everyone. On the weekend, malls and parks tend to get busy, as families try to squeeze in errands or spend time with their children. It is thus,  best to make the best of your weekend by finding alternative activities.
