Malaysia is a great bet if you are considering to move somewhere in South Asia. It is quite easy to get settled here and make yourself comfortable because the people around are extremely friendly and also because their unofficial first language is English as it earlier was a British colony. They have cheap and easy transportation and home rentals cost a fraction of what you’d pay in the U.S. If you dig arts and culture, history and nature, beaches and jungle, Penang is the best place for you to live in. One could easily live off $1,000-$1,500 a month.
