BASE jump enthusiasts from around the world converge at KL Tower, a major landmark in the city, for an adrenalin-pumping leap from the tower’s Sky Deck. This annual event puts Malaysia on the world map as a destination for sports tourism.
This festival aims to elevate and uphold our unique cultural arts heritage, indirectly stimulating and popularising cultural arts which are facing a ‘slow death’ and are sadly, disappearing. The festival brings together community-based arts that have been acknowledged by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and duly recognised as our National Heritage.
