The Kuala Langat District is a district of Selangor, Malaysia. It is situated in the southwestern part of Selangor. It covers an area of 858 square kilometres, and had a population of 213,876 at the 2010 Census (exclude foreign). It is bordered by the districts of Klang and Petaling to the north and Sepang to the east. Its southern border forms part of Selangor's border with the state of Negeri Sembilan. The Strait of Malacca forms its western border.
Kuala Langat is famous for its agricultural produce, industries that recycle scrap metal, home stay programmes for tourists and for its National Space Centre in Kanchong Darat. Local farmers transform scrap metal from cars, electronics and other household appliances into large 12 meter transformers. 
Putrajaya and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), linked by new highways, have become the catalyst for Kuala Langat’s development. Road networks and infrastructure in the district are good, making it viable for manufacturers to transport their finished goods on freight trucks to Kuala Lumpur, KLIA and Port Klang.
Bandar Saujana Putra, located in the far-north of the district, was established in 2003 by LBS Bina Berhad and is located near Putra Heights, UEP Subang Jaya (USJ) and Puchong, as well as Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, and Teluk Panglima Garang. 
The Telok Panglima Garang Free Trade Zone, industries manufacturing electronic components and car parts have created many job opportunities for locals.
Morib is being moulded into an education hub and that plans were afoot to set up a few educational institutions in Jugra. Currently there is the Kuala Langat Community College and Industrial Training Institute. Other institutions being built are a matriculation college, a polytechnic and a Mara skills training institute.
