Life in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a modern city with a strong regional and colonial history. 

The city centre contains all of the international retail outlets (including M&S!) one would expect and offers a huge range of international dining options. There are recreational facilities, parks and museums in abundance. The cost of living is significantly lower than the UK and most capital cities. Dining out is particularly inexpensive. Staff enjoy a very good lifestyle during term time and are able to travel during the holidays.

Travel

It is similar but less congested than many other Asian cities. Bangkok, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh, and Singapore are all within a short flight, as are the beaches and resorts associated with Thailand and Indonesia. Australia is five hours away.

Safety

Kuala Lumpur is also a safe city. By taking the normal precautions necessary for any large metropolis, your stay will be a safe and memorable one. There is also an established expatriate community, with the usual clubs and a range of social opportunities.

The climate is hot and humid all year round, with a nominal dry season. All public buildings and accommodation are air-conditioned and one soon adapts to the climate.

Attractions

The diversity of attractions in Malaysia is vast: there is music, theatre and restaurants in KLCC, whilst a visit to the Cameron Highlands (2 hours drive) will bring cool relief from the heat. The East Coast is renowned for its islands and beaches of white sand and crystal clear water. Georgetown in Penang is a UNESCO world heritage site, and Chinatown and Little India in KL provide further cultural and historical attractions.

In short, Kuala Lumpur is an exciting blend of old and new. For an international school we have a low staff turnover, and a number of our teachers have been with us since the school opened. Many of our staff have enjoyed living and working at the school for several years.
