Tips and Advice on Indonesia from Your Fellow Malaysian Expats

Obviously, expat life in Indonesia goes well beyond shipping your belongings and taking care of red tape. Socializing with fellow Malaysians is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the Indonesian mentality and way of life. Malaysians in Indonesia are a part of our community, calling cities such as Medan, Semerang, Jakarta, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow Malaysians in Jakarta, for example.
