A Vibrant City For Work, Study, Living and Play
The Malaysian city of Kuala Lumpur, commonly referred to as "KL" is a real melting pot of different cultures, which makes it one of the most exciting destinations in Asia for visitors to explore. The city boasts a large number of world famous attractions, while food lovers will be able to sample traditional Malay, Chinese and a large number of other types of cuisines from around the world.
Greater Kuala Lumpur, known as Klang Valley, is currently home to about 7.2 million people or more than a fifth of Malaysia's total population. One of the fastest growing metropolitan cities in the region, 10 million people are expected to call this city home by the end of the decade.
According to Mastercard International's Global Destination Cities Index, Kuala Lumpur is already on the world map as among the top 10 global destination cities in 2012.
Kuala Lumpur is poised to be an international giant in its own right, a globally competitive city of international commerce and infrastructure housing the world's best industry players. It will be a magnet for international talent and various nationalities, filling up the estimated 4.2 million job opportunities in 2020 in what is hopefully one of the world's top 20 most livable cities.
This ambitious makeover is driven by one underlying aspiration - to turn KL into a world-class city to live, work and play and be the Iconic City, symbolic of Malaysia's Vision 2020.
