Kuala Lumpur is the capital and the heart of Malaysia. With a population of about 1.8 million, Kuala Lumpur is home to a number of commercial and business centres, shopping malls, entertainment hubs and everything else that would make living fun and convenient.

Malaysia properties in Kuala Lumpur vary from semi-d bungalows in quiet residential areas to high-rise condominiums with close proximity to the CBD. An example of a high-rise condominium would be Villa Crystal. This is a two tower, 38-storey condominium set to be completed in July 2017. Villa Crystal is an exclusive condominium strategically located in South Desa-Park which links together Kuala Lumpur, Klang Valley and Petaling Jaya.


Malaysia’s third largest state, Johor, is just across the causeway from Singapore and is a mixture of island, urban and modern life.

Iskandar Malaysia in Johor is a southern development situated on a 2.217 square kilometre land that is three times larger than Singapore. This was developed to attract foreign investors. Formerly known as Iskandar Development Region and South Johor Region, the Iskandar Region now holds the first ever Legoland in Asia. There are also educational, commercial and entertainment areas in this vast enclave.

Nusajaya is Johor’s residential area and already has a number of property developments under way.

Aside from its mouth-watering cuisines, the listing of George Town as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site attracts most of the tourists that come to Penang. But what truly inspire expats to choose Penang is its cultural mix, diversity and quality of life, and colourful traditions.
