Tips and Advice on Malaysia from Your Fellow Japanese Expats

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