Kuala Lumpur has a comprehensive road system that is supported by extensive public transport networks such as the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), Light Metro (LRT), monorail, elevated Bus Rapid Transit, commuter rail and airport rail link. Kuala Lumpur is one of the leading cities in the world for tourism and shopping. It is the seventh most visited city in the world. Kuala Lumpur is the cultural, financial and economic center of Malaysia. Port Klang is the main port of Kuala Lumpur and the 12th biggest port in the world figuring between the top 10 of world’s busiest ports in 2016.
Kuala Lumpur is also a hub for cultural activities and events in Malaysia. The Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur are the tallest twin buildings in the world. It has a lot of tourist destinations, like the Kuala Lumpur Tower, Petaling Street and the Batu Caves. You can also do some shopping in one of the 66 shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur.
