Culture Tourism

Malaysia’s multi-cultural identity, many of these cultural and religious festivities are embraced by the community as a whole and celebrated nationwide, regardless of race or belief.

Culture tour is a type of tourism activity to discover and experiencing life within a foreign culture, rather than from the outside as a temporary visitor. Cultural travellers leave their home environment at home, bringing only themselves and a desire to become part of the culture they visit. Cultural travel goes beyond cultural exploration or discovery that involves a transformation in way of life. These attractions relate to a set of distinctive material, spiritual, arts and architecture, historical and cultural heritage, literature, music, creative industries, beliefs and traditions.

Malaysia has a rich cultural life, much of which revolves around the traditional festivities of its diverse population. The major Muslim holidays are Hari Raya Puasa or Aidilfitri to celebrate the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, and Hari Raya Haji or Aidiladha to celebrate the culmination of the season of pilgrimage to Mecca.

Buddhists honour the life of the Buddha on Hari Wesak and Chinese Malaysians celebrate Chinese New Year. Deepavali while Christmas is the principal holiday of the Christian community.

On most of these holidays, it is customary to host an “open house,” where guests are treated to Malaysian delicacies and hospitality. A holiday that spans all ethnic groups and religions is Hari Kebangsaan (National Day), a celebration of Malaysia’s independence on August 31.
