The cost-effectiveness of Greater KL

Greater Kuala Lumpur is a more cost-effective area to live in than many other Asian cities, given its affordable housing and favorable cost of living. According to data from iPrice Group Sdn Bhd, the cost of living for a single person in Kuala Lumpur is an estimated RM3,262, the cheapest among its Southeast Asian peers.

Furthermore, according to the Economic Outlook 2021 report by the Ministry of Finance, housing affordability has overall improved in Malaysia in the past few years as the overall median house price had fallen by one per cent annually from 2016 to 2019. Kuala Lumpur also has abundant housing for expatriates, with many residential areas close to healthcare facilities, international schools, and shopping malls. 

A top liveable city

Expatriates will also find it easy to travel within Greater KL, with the integrated public transport network that includes the Light Rail Transit, Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit Lines, KTM Intercity and ETS inter-state trains, and ERL Line. 

Indeed, quality of life is a determining factor when foreign talent relocate, and in Mercer’s 21st annual Quality of Living Survey published in 2019, Kuala Lumpur was named 10th in Asia in terms of quality of living. Additionally, ECA International’s latest location ratings survey named Kuala Lumpur among the most liveable cities for Asian expatriates.

" We move every few years and it normally takes us a month or two to adjust to a new place. We didn’t have to go through the adjustment phase in KL, though. It was an instant adjustment due to the warm and friendly nature of the people here. Greater KL has the best of both worlds– a nice blend of rich, multicultural heritage and the facilities, amenities, and comforts that a modern city offers. "
