A recent research conducted by the ECA International has named Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru and George Town in Malaysia as the ‘world’s most affordable places’ for expatriates.

Malaysia has been a travel-friendly country for Pakistanis and tops the list of destinations visited by citizens. These three Malaysian cities, our own city of lights, Karachi, Yangon in Myanmar and Mongolia’s Ulaanbaatar were named the cheapest locations for expatriates.

Tokyo in Japan is still the most expensive location for expats in the Asia Pacific.

Johor Bahru, Malaysia one of the cheapest cities to live in the world for foreigners

ECA International’s Regional Director Lee Quane mentions,

“Asia is home to some of the world’s most expensive locations, as well as its cheapest. This level of variety is only matched in Africa, which is home to both the world’s most expensive location and its cheapest.”

Malaysia being named the cheapest country is great news for Pakistanis as relations between the two countries have been on the positive side on the tourism front. Recently, at the Pakistan Travel Mart at Karachi Expo Centre, amazing discounted packages targeting families were launched by Tourism Malaysia in conjunction with GR Travel. The special packages were announced by Datuk Sri, Mirza Mohammad Taiyab, Director General, Tourism Malaysia.
