Living in KL is fun, if you’re a city kind of person. Moving to KL was a dream come true of mine.
There is a wide range (like, super wide) of income disparity between KL-ites. Some people make a few hundred a month. Some people make a few hundred thousand a month.
This guide draws on my experience when I was living in KL. As a benchmark, I was a single female in early 20s, with a job that netted me about RM3000 a month. I moved out from my parents’ house for good at around 22 – and I remember this as I started my Masters during this time – and have been happily living by myself ever since. I lived in Serdang, Old Klang Road, and PWTC area. Now I live in Ipoh (Related: Ipoh and KL living cost comparison).
If you are moving out for the first time, be prepared to know how much you actually need before you can even consider it.
