Visit Malaysia Year 2014 starts now!

Malaysia is preparing for Visit Malaysia Year in 2014 early, with an exciting line up of festivals in 2013. Visit Malaysia Year intends to bring world-class attractions to the country in a bid to draw in more visitors for 2013/2014.

The celebrations will start on the 18th January with a big carnival to promote the campaign in the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur. There will also be the Thaipusam Festival at the end of the month which features a chariot procession pulling into the city’s famous Batu Caves.  

February is set to be dominated by the Chinese New Year celebrations, which last 15 days and offer food stalls and markets as well as colourful dances and performances, and displays of Chinese tradition. At the end of February the Pasir Gudang World Kite Festival will take place, filling Malaysia’s skys with colourful and innovative kite designs.

Other festivities going on throughout the year in the run up to Visit Malaysia Year 2014 include the Water Festival on the island of Langkawi, the Colours of Malaysia Festival in May, the Malaysia International Tourism Night Floral Parade in Putrajaya in June, and the Rainforest World Music Festival in Sarawak from 28th to 30th June.

For those interested in the spiritual and religious sides of Malaysia, Ramandan takes place in July followed by Hari Raya celebrations in August.

Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen stated that Visit Malaysia Year 2014 is “not going to focus solely on tourism products. We aim to also make Malaysia the venue of choice for conventions, seminars and meetings.”
