A placement in Malaysia gives you an opportunity to live and work in a country with a rich cultural fabric. Malaysia is a multi-ethnic country with a huge variety of festivals, cuisines and traditions.
Malaysia has everything from dynamic cities to areas of remote natural beauty. It is very multicultural: the majority of the population is ethnic Malay and Chinese, but there are also sizeable Indian (mainly Tamil) and Sri Lankan minorities. This makes for an incredibly interesting cultural experience, and you will see just how possible it is for so many people of different races and creeds to live harmoniously. The official language is Malay, but Chinese, English, Tamil, Hindi and tribal dialects are widely spoken. Due to the cultural diversity you will find a wide range of exquisite cuisine and will celebrate many of the world’s festivals.
There are still huge areas of Malaysia that are tropical rainforest and you will no doubt be climbing Kinabalu, which is the highest Mountian in the country, or visiting the orangutans as part of a trip to Sabah in Borneo.
It’s easy to see why so many tourists come to Malaysia but living here will give you a unique insight into a fascinating country. You will gain a inimitable understanding of different faiths and religions in a country where these shape many aspects of everyday life.
Malaysia is unique in the region but maintains that South East Asian warmth and hospitality.
