Two of Asia’s most diverse places, Singapore and Malaysia offer an abundance of colourful culture, amazing landscapes and – most importantly to many of its food-mad citizens – a world of gastronomic delights. With Indian, Malay and Chinese traditions blending seamlessly together, there’s no shortage of colourful events to enjoy.
Guests enjoying this epic journey during the month of May will coincide with two of the most charismatic dates in the festival calendar. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s buzzing capital, the Holi Hindu celebration marks the end of winter and the triumph of light over dark. The festival is also known as the ‘festival of colour’ with participants chasing and colour each other with dry powder and coloured water.
Following a detour to the peaceful Cameron Highlands, guests will enjoy another auspicious date in the island of Penang where the Buddhist community gather to celebrate Vesak Day (Buddha Day) with a boisterous parade.
