Malaysia is very popular for people to migrate to because it is not only an adventure far away, it is also a beautiful place with many natural treasures for them to explore during their stay. Employment opportunities are plenty and costs of living are relatively low. Malaysia has excellent health care facilities and there are many international schools to choose from if you settle here with children. Malaysia is a developed country so the change in transition is not too much to handle.
There are also many people in Malaysia that did not come there to work. They come to enjoy life in this wonderful country.
Most of them join the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) program under which they are entitled to buy a second home in Malaysia. Some live in Malaysia for a couple of months each year to hibernate, as the climate is pleasantly tropical thus nicer compared to the often cold European climate.
