Malaysia's capital is Kuala Lumpur. The city is situated 25 miles (40 km) east of Peninsular Malaysia's ocean port, Port Kelang, on the Strait of Malacca, in the country's west-central region, halfway along the west coast's tin and rubber belt. It serves as the largest urban region in the nation as well as its transportation, economic, and cultural hub. The Main Range of Malaysia rises close towards the northeast, east, and southeast. Equatorial conditions prevail, with year-round high temperatures and consistent humidity levels.
