Cost of Living in Malaysia

When looking for a place to retire, cost of living is the first concern for a lot of people. Many are on a fixed budget and want to live in a place that has all the comforts of home without the same high costs. Penang, an island just off Malaysia’s west coast, is that place. On $2,500 a month, a couple can live extremely well. Rent in a modern highrise with a pool, a gym, and security guards will cost about $750 to $800. That price will get you a modern 2,300-square-foot condo with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a balcony overlooking the ocean. If you don't care to live with a view or by the beach, you can rent a two- or three-bedroom place for about $550 to $650, which means you could easily live on $2,000 a month.
