  3. Hi

    I am planning to relocate with my family of 3(including 8 year old son) to Penang, Malaysia by Jan 2022. I will be working in Penang.I need to know cost of living for family of 3 including rent in Penang. Is 15000 MYR a good salary before tax? How much can we save on a monthly basis? For expats like me, how much would be the tax per month? I heard International English medium school admissions for a grade 3 class is expensive in Penang.

    Please advise me on this.

    Kind Regards

      You can check for property prices at
      & check Google ‘international Penang school fees’, you’ll be looking at around a min of RM20,000 a year in fees alone.

      But this is a great topic. I would consider making an article or video about this in the future.
