The country consists of two different geographical regions separated by the South China Sea. The one region is Peninsula Malaysia, also referred to as West Malaysia. East Malaysia includes the Sarawak and Sabah region of Borneo Island and 13 diverse states.
Malaysia may be diverse, but the people are mostly friendly and welcoming. Communication shouldn’t be too much of a problem either as most people speak English as the country is fast beginning to expand its economy in area’s such as science, tourism, commerce and medical tourism.
With a vast mix of cultures and nationalities, Malaysia offers expats a lifestyle replete with first-world comforts and conveniences while its easily accessible jungles and island getaways still allow a sense of adventure. Travel within Malaysia is generally cheap and easy, particularly within Peninsula Malaysia. The country has an extensive road and rail network and taxis are easy to come by in the larger cities.
Although separated into two distinct parts, Malaysia’s landscape and climate are fairly similar. The country has an equatorial climate, with the southwest monsoon from April to October and the northeast monsoon from October to February.
