KL busMalaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur is targeting 15 million tourists to visit the city this year in conjunction with the heavily promoted Visit Malaysia Year 2014. This is part of an overall forecast of 28 million tourists to visit the country in 2014.

The city’s mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said Kuala Lumpur is targeting 10.1 million international tourists and 4.9 million domestic tourists, who were expected to bring in an estimated total revenue of $7.7 billion.

In 2012, the city recorded 14 million tourist arrivals, comprising 9.3 million foreign tourists and 4.7 million domestic tourists, who brought in revenue of $6,1 billion, he said.

With regard to the New Year’s Eve incident at Dataran Merdeka, where a concert had to be called off when protesters broke through the police cordon to seize the stage, he hoped it would not mar efforts by the government to get more tourists to visit the country.
