What is Lifestyle Migration?

Lifestyle migration is the migration or movement of people for quality of life rather than economic or security reasons.

Lifestyle migration (sometimes called residential tourism) is an increasingly important phenomenon, with effects for migrants, locals,    cultural life, and economic life. It has been studied quite widely in European contexts but has been overlooked in Asian contexts.

This project will examine the motivations, experiences and outcomes of lifestyle migration in Malaysia, Thailand and China.
