Colour of Malaysia

The following is another recent article published at our Leisure section:

Colours of Malaysia were splashed at the historic Merdeka Stadium in Kuala Lumpur July 2nd 2005, drawing thousands to witness featuring the best in performing arts, culture and tradition by ethnic groups and performers from Asean countries including China, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

All joined in a big feast later at the Citrawarna Food Village, after the spectacular bedazzled the senses.

'Citrawarna Malaysia' was inaugurated in 1999 and, now in its seventh year to become a major tourism annual to woo thousands of visitors. Some 70 cultural activities will be staged throughout the country during the Citrawarna month of July.

Also flocking to cover the gala were some 500 journalists, travel agents and television crew from nearly 30 countries. It was a fusion of East and West Malaysia on that night, where the distinctive communities - Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan, Dusun and Iban - showcased unique lifestyles and heritage in tradition, architecture and language on the big stage.

Heralding to tourists that there is much to do and see, Citrawarna Malaysia 2005 inaugurates one of the best times to experience it all in July, with the famous slogan 'Malaysia Truly Asia' coming to life before your very eyes.

The 'Colours of Malaysia' includes its scenic beauty at destinations like sun-kissed islands and palm-fringed coastlines with long, sandy beaches and exquisite diving spots in an amazing underwater life filled with fishes, corals, shells and other denizens of the deep sea.

The cool highlands offer green adventure and nature trails, millennia-old rain-forest, jungle-clad lowlands. The neon-lit cities and towns have a thriving nightlife, entertainment and world-class shopping malls.
