Visit Malaysia 2007: The Event

Malaysia Flora Fest 2007

Malaysia Flora Fest 2007
Colours of Harmony [ 20 Jan - 4 Feb 2007 ]

Malaysia is celebrating 50 glorious years of independence with the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 campaign. With over 240 exciting events and programmes lined up, it will be a year-long celebration for both Malaysians and visitors alike.

In conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007, the Malaysia Floral Fest is back with the biggest and most colourful display of flora in Malaysia. The theme for this year's Flora Fest is Colours Of Harmony, as Malaysia's colourful blooms represent the beautiful racial harmony found in Malaysia. For a whole week in January, several Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur venues will be transformed with bright, colourful and fragrant blooms.

Inspired by past successes at the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade in USA, Malaysia's very own floral parade will grace the launch of Malaysia Flora Fest 2007.

Originally introduced in 1991, Malaysia's Floral Parade is the only such parade ever organized in Southeast Asia. And this year the parade will be more dazzling than ever. Participants from various organizations and state governments will try to outshine one another with their own floral creations.

So, don't be a wallflower, come express your love for Mother Nature with your best floral display. Whether you are a participant or a spectator, you will not want to miss the fun as we celebrate the beauty and splendour of Malaysian blossoms.
