Klang Valley ( ) is an area in Malaysiamarker comprising Kuala Lumpurmarker and its suburbs, and adjoining cities and towns in the state of Selangormarker. An alternative reference to this would be Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan Area or Greater Kuala Lumpur, though neither of these terms is used locally. It is geographically delineated by Titiwangsa Mountains to the north and east and the Strait of Malaccamarker to the west. The conurbation has a total population of over 4 million as of 2004, and is the heartland of Malaysia's industry and commerce. In the most recent census, the population in the Klang Valley had expanded to 4.7 million, and in 2006, the population in this area is estimated to be 6.0 million [87893]. Klang Valley is home to a large number of migrants from other states within Malaysia and foreign workers largely from Indonesia, India and Nepal.

Origin

The valley is named after Klang Rivermarker, the principal river that flows through it, which is closely linked to the early development of the area as a cluster of tin mining towns in the late 19th century. Development of the region took place largely in the East-West direction (between Gombak and Port Klangmarker) but the urban areas surrounding Kuala Lumpur have since grown south towards the border with Negeri Sembilanmarker and north towards Rawang.

Regions

There is no official designation of the boundaries that make up Klang Valley but it is often assumed to comprise the following areas and their corresponding local authorities:
