KL ranked 9 out of 100 cities globally for international tourists arrivals

Kuala Lumpur is ranked 9th out of the world's 100 leading cities for international tourists arrivals according to Euromonitor International's Top City Destinations Ranking

Speaking at the launch of KL Tourism's #IAMKL e-newsletter and digital media campaign, Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said that 11.2 million international tourists visited Kuala Lumpur in 2013, reflecting the importance of KL to global tourism, in terms of business and leisure.

Ahmad Phesal estimated that Kuala Lumpur expects approximately 12.3 million foreign visitors for 2015 alongside 3 million domestic tourists.

During his speech, he stressed the need for the city's various organisations to collaborate with one another in ensuring KL Tourism's Master Plan 2015-2025 will achieve maximum success.

"In particular digital media will prove to be the crux from which we ought to expand forth. Ignoring this will only lead to our detriment," said Ahmad Phesal who said that the trend of taking selfies could be advantageous to the Master Plan.
