For the many Indians who live in Kuala Lumpur, Deepavali or Diwali is the festival of lights. Following a massive spring cleaning of homes, Hindus light up their houses with oil lamps and visit other family homes. It’s a time to remember the triumph of good over evil and people dress up in beautiful clothes and light firecrackers.
There are other festivals in Kuala Lumpur as well, such as Thaipusam in Batu Caves or cultural ones such as the International Jazz festival or the Good Vibes festival which are great to catch up on the music scene, both local and international.
Malaysia’s National Day is called Hari Merdeka and is celebrated with parades and other festivities. Celebrated on August 31, the day begins with the Merdeka Day Parade which is glorious and takes place across the Sultan Abdul Samad building.
