Time is truly flying past this Summer 2011! We’re settling into the peak season well but for those of you making the trip in September we’re taking the opportunity to showcase some upcoming events and attractions. Dig in and enjoy!
12th September (and Glowing lanterns illuminate the Kuala Lumpur night sky!)
The world famous Lantern & Mooncake Festival brings a glowing and jovial atmosphere to the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market each and every year. We regularly recommend this event to travelers, particularly those fond of design, art and culture. Special cuisine joins forces with beautiful colors illuminating both day and night skies. The pretty sights bring a sense of warmth and homeliness whilst the visual displays are popular with people of all ages.
Find out more about the festival, and others, on our dedicated festival guide.
15th – 17th September
Sticking near Kuala Lumpur and fans of motorspot will be delighted to know that the 12th edition of the Merdeka Millenium Endurance Race comes to Sepang Circuit mid-month. Named after its inaugural event on the turn of the year 2000, the 12 hour endurance race attracts international teams, drivers and cars for a fiercely competitive race featuring many of the same entrants as the Le Mans and Nurburgring events.
A little bit of healthy patriotism never goes amiss and this is the tourist’s opportunity to mingle with locals on a day of celebration, Malaysia Day, no less! Malaysia was established on this very date some 48 years ago, and on it communities join together on both sides of the South China Sea to celebrate an inimitable and tight-knit culture. Try Kuala Lumpur or Kota Kinabalu for a taste of the event.
20th – 23rd September (a specialist event for those in the food industry!)
Malaysia has often been dubbed a ‘foodie’s paradise’, but in late September comes a special treat for hoteliers and industry buffs above and beyond, Culinaire Malaysia 2011. The event in Kuala Lumpur is a celebration of both global and local cuisine with one criteria inkeeping, usefulness! Those in the food and catering industry will find a showcase of cutting edge tools and machinery designed to enhance the industry.
