Malaysia 2
Ten day trip to Langkawi and Kuala Lumpur

 

The Isles of Langkawi - ninety nine of them, are tucked into the northwest corner of the peninsula and nestled on the Thai-Malaysian sea border. Unspoilt and rustic, it is a tropical paradise spectacularly endowed by nature, one where crystal clear emerald waters, azure skies, lush green vegetation and fantastic limestone formations can be found. Go Island hopping and find the spot you like best. Then go on various tours including the Pulau Marine Park, the Genting Highlands and the Sunway Lagoon. Truly a magical honeymoon that you’ll remember forever!

  Events

   

With so many cultures and religions in Malaysia, there is quite an amazing number of occasions to celebrate. Although some of them have a fixed date each year, the Hindus, Muslims and Chinese all follow a lunar calendar, so the dates for many events vary year to year. Tourism Malaysia puts out biannual Calendar of Events sheets with specific dates and venues of various festivals and parades, but state tourist offices have more detailed listings.

Thaipusam (when devotees of Lord Subramaniam prove their faith by piercing their body parts with metal spikes and hooks), Chinese New Year and Deepavali (Festival of Lights, when tiny oil lamps are lit outside the homes of Hindu people to entice Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, inside). City Day is 1 February, when KL commemorates becoming a federal territory. Celebrations take place at Tasik Perdana and Lake Titiwangsa gardens in the north of the city. In July, KL goes flower-crazy during the Flora Fest, with exhibitions and the International Floral Parade. At midnight on 30 August, revellers crowd Merdeka Square to celebrate National Day, the anniversary of Malaysia’s independence in 1957. For two weeks in September, KL celebrates Malaysia Fest (also called the Colours of Malaysia) with exhibits of traditional arts and special cultural per formances around town. The October Shopping Carnival follows on its heels. For the shopaholics, June till August sees the Malaysian Mega Sales Carnival.
