Although the Malay culture is the main practice, other cultures are more then welcome to be followed as Malaysians embraces diversity.

Besides shopping, families have the choice of watching a movie or go bowling, all in the convenience of the same mall. The annual mega sale is also not to be missed.

Sports & Recreation

The country has a variety of sports to offer, from badminton to a classy game of golf. Children will also be entertained with the many theme parks available and families who are looking for a relaxing holiday can head to the highlands for cooler weather or the beach for sunshine and clear sand.

Food & Fruits

For every food there is in the world, it can all be experienced here at a low cost. Themed as the Asia’s Food Paradise, it lives up to its name by having variety of food ranging from the mamak stalls from the side of the road to posh restaurants.
