Raising kids in Malaysia

Hello everyone,

How is raising kids in Malaysia different from raising kids in your home country?

What are the activities that your kids seem to enjoy the most in Malaysia?

Do you feel that the country is "family-friendly"?

Do you recommend Malaysia as a good place to raise kids? Why or why not?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Hi Priscilla,

Raising kids is not so different, although I feel that kids mature more quickly here,  they seem more aware or things around them, probably being in an international school environment.

My kids enjoy playing at their friends home, shopping, eating at their favourite restaurants, swimming, traveling.

Yes Malaysia is an extremely family friendly country.

Yes I do recommend Malaysia as a good place to raise kids. It is a safe and relaxed country, lots of things for kids to do and see, and I have always believed international school education is superior.

You are most welcome.

Hi AbdulKhalil,
Very happy to hear your feedback on this. I'm also curious about..
How about costs of living with kids? How much does it cost for a average international school, how about transport and other expenses?
