According to a survey by InterNations, Kuala Lumpur was voted the best city in the world for expats to live and work in 2021. Over 12, 000 expats participated in the survey, representing a total of 171 nationalities living in 186 countries across the globe.

Here are the reasons why:

KL is one the greenest cities in the world.  Despite many skyscrapers and condos, you can still see and walk/hike into the jungles/natural forests that surround the city from virtually every peak with large pockets of green within and you will fall in love with hiking and trail running in this city!

KL is an uber modern capital city, where its shiny skyscrapers (e.g. KLCC, KL Tower etc) surround the old city containing enclaves, beautiful ancient temples, mosques, cathedral, synagogues blend harmoniously with traditional Malay, Chinese, Indian as well as Colonial architecture. KL is probably the only city in the world that celebrates every religious festival with a public holiday (e.g. the Muslim Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Chinese New Years, Indian Divali & Thaipusam Day, Christmas Day, Buddhist Vesak Day etc)  hence keeping all its cultural heritage intact.
