Named "The Golden Chersonese" by ancient Indian, Arab and Chinese mariners, Malaysia occupies the southern most tip of Asia as well as the land mass bordering the South China seaboard of the great island of Borneo. Malaysia is located right in the heart of South East Asia and with a land area of 329,750 sq km it is a little bigger than the United Kingdom.
Looking for year-round sunshine? Malaysia is surely a contender. This former British colony has it all, from the high-rise bustling capital city of Kuala Lumpur to tropical beaches and remote rainforests.
Since 2009, Malaysia has changed to become the country with probably the most open property market in Asia. In June of that year Malaysia replaced its central government’s foreign investment committee (FIC) approval for property purchase by non-citizens with the new EPU Guidelines (EPU). This made it quicker and easier for overseas buyers to own a house here. The housing industry celebrated the change in rules as a triumph of business over bureaucracy.
