Kuala Lumpur has been ranked eighth globally and third in Asia for being the best city to live in by the InterNations' annual Expat City Ranking global survey.

Globally, Kuala Lumpur trailed four cities in Spain, Mexico City; Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), while in Asia, it was behind the two UAE cities mentioned earlier.

The rankings were determined by assessing the experiences of expatriates in the past year, with InterNations conducting a survey of over 12,000 expats globally.

A thorough examination included 177 expat nationalities in 181 countries or territories, assessing factors such as the ease of adaptation, personal finances, quality of life, and other pertinent aspects.

Malaysia was also ranked as the fourth-best country in the world for expats to live, behind Mexico, Spain, and Panama.
