KLANG VALLEY (Greater KL)
Klang Valley is an area in Malaysia comprising Kuala Lumpur and its suburbs, and adjoining cities and towns in the state of Selangor. An alternative reference to this would be Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan Area or Greater Kuala Lumpur. It is geographically delineated by Titiwangsa Mountains to the north and east and the Strait of Malacca to the west. The conurbation is the heartland of Malaysia's industry and commerce.  As of 2012, the Klang Valley is home to roughly 7.5 million people. Klang Valley is home to a large number of migrants from other states within Malaysia and foreign workers largely from Indonesia, India and Nepal.
Regions of Klang Valley are as follow:
  • Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur (Kuala Lumpur City Hall)
