Malaysia is an emerging tourist destination that offers a cosmopolite cultural experience. Besides its Petrona Towers, restaurants, pubs, hotels and resorts, beaches, harbors, islands, shops, theatres and cruises, Malaysia is also a delightful place for diving, snorkeling, bicycle tours, treks to Mt Kinabalu, fishing, bird watching, tours to Gunung Mulu National Park and its caves, and turtle watching.
From traditional to contemporary, from religious fests to grand competitions, events in Malaysia showcase the cosmopolite cultural heritage of the region, the sporty attitude of the Malays, their passion for parties and merriments, and a marked undertone of Chinese culture.
The nationwide celebrations of Chinese New Year, Petronas Malaysian F1 Grand Prix, Malaysia Water Festival, Gawai Harvest Festival, Food & Fruits Fiesta, 26th Annual Penang International Dragon Boat Festival, Lantern & Mooncake Festival, Diwali, and Ramadan are just some of the festivals that showcase Malaysia's complex past and progressive spirit.
Malaysia has always been known for its multicultural fabric, which never fails to enthrall its visitors who greedily devour every bit of information doled out to them. In fact, this "mini Asia" is a melting pot of various cultures and races that have co-existed in harmonious togetherness for centuries. So it is not surprising to see the Malays celebrate every festival and event with equal fervor. The Malaysian festival calendar is choc-a-block with so many events and festivals that it becomes practically difficult to keep track of all of them. But it may be noted that the Malays have made sure that each event or festival retains its distinct character.
Be it food or sport or plain merriment, nothing can beat the jolly Malays who never let go of an opportunity to celebrate. Since every religion in Asia has sufficient representation in Malaysia, you can see every religious event making a big splash on the Malay festival calendar. Besides, the events and festivals listed above, the Labuan International Sea Challenge, the Malacca Mountain Bike Championship, the Genting World Lion Dance Championship, the Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival and the Merdeka Month Celebration are other important events that adorn Malaysia's festival calendar. However, it may be noted that there are many more such events and festivals that give Malaysia its distinct character. In fact, it is almost impossible to note all of them at one go.
These extended celebrations of life and humanity in general have never failed to draw tourists in hordes to this beautiful country. You can also be a part of these celebrations. All you need to do is to tell us which event you want to be a part of and we will give you a holiday worth remembering.
