  1. Diverse Cultural Heritage: Malaysia is a melting pot of cultures, including several indigenous communities. Malaysia’s cultural heritage is a historical relic and an enchanting living experience. With a history of settlers and immigrants, Malaysia is undergoing rapid development today. Malay culture, with its intricate batik patterns, traditional dance forms, and the art of crafting ornate Kerris Draggers, reflects the indigenous roots of the land. Chinese traditions are visible in the vibrant Chinese New Year Celebrations and bustling Chinatowns. Festivals like Diwali and Thaipusam showcase the Indian influence.
  2. Festivals in the land: Malaysian festivals are a delight to participate in—colorful, vibrant, noisy, and dynamic. Here is a list of the major festivals celebrated here.
  • Chinese New Year: The Chinese New Year is a week-long celebration that ushers in the lunar New Year. Festivities during the New Year include dragon and lion dances, fireworks, family reunions, and the exchange of “ang pow” (red envelopes with money). Visit Malaysia in January/February to know more.
  • Mooncake Festival: Chinese families come together to celebrate this festival in the months of August and September. They light lanterns, admire the full moon, and enjoy moon cakes as a part of this mid-autumn festivity.
  • Thaipusam is a significant Hindu festival when devotees pierce their bodies with hooks and carry kavadis (burdens) to fulfill vows and inherit blessings. This festival celebrated in January or February, is marked by the striking processions of the devotees. Book your trip to Malaysia with our Kuala Lumpur best buy package.

These races feature narrow boats adorned with dragon heads and tails and operated by rowers. You can also expect to see lion and dragon dances, demonstrations of martial arts, and cultural performances if you travel during this time. December is the month of festivity.
  • Diwali: In Malaysia, Diwali is not limited to the Indian community. The spirit of celebration extends to Hindus and people of other ethnic backgrounds. Streets come alive with colorful decorations, parades, and traditional foods.
