Malaysia is split into two parts — Peninsula Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo.

It is truly a multicultural society, with the main ethnic groups being Malays, Chinese and Indians.

A vast number of holidays and festivals take place throughout the country and, if you move to Malaysia, you should try to experience as many as you can in order to get a good feel for the country and the people living in it.

Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur (or ‘KL’), is relatively small by Asian standards with only four million residents.

It is a diverse and relaxed city, with people who are known to be quite laid back.

It is a very progressive and urban city and you might be surprised at how easy it is to live there.
