Marking one of the greatest days in Malaysia's history is the annual City Day festival. Malaysia has no finer or more exuberant festival than this splendid affair, which is held in commemoration of the declaration of its Federal Territories. The banks of Lake Titiwangsa and Lake Gardens come alive during the months of January and February with splashes of vibrant colour and exotic vibe of lively energy as crowds gather to be a part of these thrilling Kuala Lumpur festivals.
Fireworks, parades and much more
With exhibitions, parades and fireworks galore, the city explodes into a carnival of celebration in tandem with the many other festivals that are celebrated around the country. Labuan, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur are Malaysia's federal territories which, under the administration of the federal government of Malaysia compose an offshore international financial centre, the administrative capital and the national capital respectively.
The Kuala Lumpur International Marathon is also held annually in tandem with the Kuala Lumpur City Day celebrations, attracting large crowds from all parts of the world, predominantly the South Asian region. Chinese New Year is also included in the cities events calendar, merely adding to the great festivities and days of exotic parades and traditional dances.
It is the ideal season for international visitors to experience the rich and vibrant culture of this great Asian nation and also take the opportunity of sampling delightfully succulent Asian cuisine. Reserve your stay at the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, among the wide range of selected accommodation alternatives, to satisfy your luxury hotel requirements with the carefully personalised touch of elegantly appointed rooms, complete with warm, hospitable service.
