Best Place to Celebrate Christmas in Malaysia
Looking for the best place to celebrate Christmas in Malaysia this year?
Malaysia doesn't have a white Christmas but Malaysians do celebrate Christmas with warmth, cheers and excitement. Here's a couple of ideas on where you should go.
Genting Highlands, Pahang
If you insist on having a white Christmas in Malaysia, you may visit Genting Highlands for their "Winter Wonderland" a.k.a. SnowWorld. Otherwise, you may enjoy the cool weather around Genting Premium Outlet or Sky Avenue. Christmas trees can be seen throughout Genting Highlands when it's approaching Christmas so be sure to check it out!
i-City, Shah Alam
Approaching Christmas, i-City in Shah Alam, with its forest of digital lights and Snowalk attractions, is especially popular at this time of year. Step into the park and take a moment to admire the showcase of dazzling lights shaped into a snowman, Christmas baubles and giant gift boxes. Bright lights aside, i-City is also home to the country’s first wax display of well-known personalities.
Portuguese Settlement, Melaka
Homeowners in the Portuguese Settlement in Melaka take pride in decorating their houses inside and out at Christmas. The festivities run from early December at the start of Advent till the Feast of the Epiphany in the first week of the new year. Homes have been spruced up with multi-coloured miniature lights, coloured bulbs and other fanciful illumination inside and outside and the Settlement invariably turns into a large fairyland at night.
