The writer, Elaine Pofeldt, writes that many Americans are choosing to move overseas to somewhere cheaper upon retirement. These retirees are making the move as they are looking for a “simpler way of life.”

When mentioning Malaysia, the writer writes that many expats are attracted to Kuala Lumpur and Penang. Some of the reasons given include Malaysia’s “dependable telecommunication systems, clean water, access to immaculate beaches and lush jungles in a tropical climate,” and more.
