Concrete Jungle: Here Are The 10 Most Visited Cities In The World!

These streets will make you feel brand new.

Credit card supplier Mastercard has recently just revealed their 2018 Global Destination Cities Index, and guess what: Kuala Lumpur is in it!


The Index, which covers 162 cities this year, ranks metropolises in terms of total international overnight visitor arrivals and cross-border spending.

The ranking took into account how long a tourist stay in one city, as well as how much they spend per day on average.

For our little country, it's the third year in a row that we've made the top ten, so that means we are still quite an attractive travel destination.

But where on the top ten did we rank?

Without further ado, ladies and gents, here are the top 10 most visited cities in the world in 2017:
