i-City is the latest tourist spot in Shah Alam, Selangor. Dubbed the City of Digital Lights, it is reputed to be the first lightscape tourist destination in Malaysia.
Showcasing state-of-the-art LED technology, i-City is an exciting and fascinating place to visit, especially during festive seasons such as Chinese New Year. The combination of the LED lights technology and traditional element presents a strong selling point for i-City.
As visitors stroll around the colourful forest that resembles a four-season park, they get to see dozens of wonderful sculptures. Besides that, many beautiful red and yellow lanterns can also be seen. The sculptures and themes, as well as the lighting decoration in i-City are changed periodically. Hence, there will always be something new for visitors to see and enjoy.
With beautiful scenery and unique display of dazzling digital lights, it is not a surprise that i-City is a haven for shutterbugs. It also provides a beautiful setting for wedding photography.
With numerous bulbs lighting up i-City nightly, some people might be concerned about their effect on the environment. i-City is quick to assure that the digital lights with total power consumption equivalent to about 4 shop lots, are environmentally friendly.
i-City has hosted various large-scale events and programmes, such as Malaysia’s Independence Day Celebration on 31 August and the Mid-Autumn Festival. During the 2010 World Cup, i-City also screened the matches live from Johannesburg on its 6.5m x 8.5m video wall, the largest video screen in Southeast Asia.
night time at i-city
i-City is “open” 24 hours a day as it has been approved as a technopreneur campus, where cosmopolitan lifestyle outlets can operate on a 24-hour basis. Under this concept, i-City will be a “gated but open” zone where security, traffic management, landscaping, rubbish management and other township services will be the responsibility of i-City. This is in recognition of i-City as a night tourist destination and a knowledge hub.
