About The Smart Local Malaysia


The Smart Local Malaysia is one of the fastest-growing English-language publishers in Malaysia, reaching over 4 million people monthly. We primarily cater to Malaysians, expats, and Singaporean tourists visiting the country. All content is produced by an in-house team of Malaysian content creators based in KL as we believe locals know their country best.

Made up mainly of 76% Malaysians (mostly from Klang Valley and Johor) and 13% Singaporeans, The Smart Local Malaysia’s audience are English-speaking people looking to discover or rediscover things to do, buy and eat in the different cities in Malaysia. They are also interested in exciting new product launches and events, as well as travel-related content and Malaysia news.
