There are more than 70+ shopping malls and arcades in Dubai alone. With The Dubai Mall crowned with the world largest mall make it a ‘must see’ tourist spot in Dubai.
Besides few other indoor attraction (fee based) such as Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, At the Top Burj Khalifa, Ice Rink etc, the music fountain showcase draw huge crowd every evening (because it is free and nice to watch).
Viewing from the restaurant balcony would be a good choice. Do take note that the music and performance varies every 30 minutes.
Being the largest shopping center in the world, Dubai Mall needs some mind boggling projects such as skiing slope and giant water tank in a desert country.
The aquarium if a great alternative option other than shopping in Dubai Mall.
Most of the specimens and species are similar to other major aquariums, but Dubai Aquarium has Guinness World Record under its belt (2010) for having the largest Acrylic panel which holds 10 million litres of water. My camera lens couldn’t capture the entire wall panel. Standing on 2nd floor (see the guy in shadow), that gives you a better perspective how big is this aquarium tank.
I always fascinated by the ‘local’ facet of a city.
One of the good place to visit is Dubai Creek to meet the local and to witness daily walk of life at Dubai.
Of course, if you are visiting the museum and shops, some of the locals are role playing to demonstrate to the visitors the way of life in the past.
We made a short round trip from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Bharu for the Qing-Ming Festival 清明 (Chinese Tomb Sweeping Day).
With respect of the ancestors, it may not be nice to take pictures of this colourful and smoky festival.
So, I rather showed you the original skeleton of the famous Perak Man. This is the oldest complete set of skeleton discovered in South East Asia. He lived more than 10,000 years ago. Note: Peking Man dated back to 300,000 years.
This skeleton has been relocated back to Lenggong Archaeological Museum in 2014 for Malaysia Tourism Year. Lenggong Valley has been crowned as the World Heritage Site.
We have fun for a colour Sunday afternoon at Shree Lakshmi Narayan Mandir (Kuala Lumpur).
The event is free but outside visitors have been limited to bring the event under control.
If you can stand the hot sun and colour face for next 7 days, this will be a fun event.
Are you ready for some colours?
Over thousand of visitors queuing up under the hot sun to join Holi Festival 2014.
If you have not watch the movie Avatar, you can find similar creatures in this festival.
The exhibition is coming to a close on 10 March 2014 at Komplek Kraf Kuala Lumpur.
The National Craft Day is a 2 weeks festival to host nationwide crafts at Kuala Lumpur.
It is a wonderful event for tourists and families to view many delicate crafts and foods in one place.
