This year, at the 1Malaysia International Tourism Night Floral Parade, visitors will be greeted by a splash of colours, bright lights and mesmerising decorative boats, set to take place from 30 June till 8 July.
A total of 15 boats will converge on Putrajaya Lake, representing popular tourism icons; will sail on for nine consecutive nights at Precinct 2, from 9.30 pm till 11.30 pm.
The scent of freshly cut jasmine wafts through the air. The kolam decorated intricately with rice powder is a riot of colours. Deepavali treats such as murukku, omapoodi and sweetmeats are prepared for guests.
Preparations are under way for the big celebration of Deepavali in households throughout Malaysia.
