Unusual Venues

Dating back to 1888, Central Market, a former wet market, is today an epicentre of Malaysian culture, arts and handicrafts and is ideal for events which will highlight the rich Malaysian multi-cultural heritage.

The Thean Hou temple, one of the largest Chinese temples in South-east Asia, is not only a place of worship but also offers special halls for meetings and events. The structure itself is a striking sacred landmark and is sure to present an eye-opening experience to its visitors.

For lovers of nostalgia, hitch a ride back in time on the North Borneo Railway in Sabah. Built in 1896 and connecting the interiors of Sabah to Weston port, the steam-powered locomotives are maintained in tip-top condition, providing yester-century’s charms to today’s passengers.

Be inspired by nature and adventure

Venture into paddy planting sessions at the Laman Padi, Langkawi, using both traditional and modern methods of cultivation. Your team will also enjoy the gorgeous and breath-taking bird’s eye views of the padi fields from the rooftop garden. For both adventure and nature lovers, experience the Panorama Langkawi with its SkyCab cable car and the suspended SkyBridge on the top of the Machinchang mountain and share your ‘I Was Here’ moment at the Skypos.
The Sepang International Circuit is for teams that are geared for high energy, adventure and the ultimate adrenaline rush. Situated 85km from Kuala Lumpur, the state-of-the-art circuit, known as Malaysia’s ‘Home of Motor Sports’, is perfect for your company’s next team building venue.

Corporate Social Responsibility

In Malaysia, the options to create your own strategic approach to CSR are endless. Whether to encourage innovation, build teamwork and levels of trust or just to forge stronger relationships within an organisation, these objectives can be achieved while engaging in beneficial activities that also help to make the world a better place.

Nature conservation

In Malaysia, we truly believe in being in-tune with the environment. We are blessed with nature and its many wonders – ranging from our 130 million-year-old lush tropical rainforests, which house an estimated 20 per cent of the world’s animal species, to the world famous Coral Triangle, a biodiversity hotspot for reef life that supports one of the world’s most diverse displays of coral and reef fish. With all these gifts from Mother Nature, conservation is an important subject in Malaysia.

Experience the Great Ape Encounter by spending a day with the caretakers of the Orang Utan.

Activities

In Malaysia, there are many authentic cultural and lifestyle experiences, set against spectacular backdrops representing the ethnic make-up of the country. Join in a celebration of a Kenduri feast in an authentic Malay village setting accompanied by the sounds of the traditional hand drums and the tantalising smell of local dishes.

Chinese cultural traditions are best experienced in Chinatown amid distinctive architecture and magnificent temples. Partake in Chinese arts and culture activities in ornate Chinese clan houses featuring intricate calligraphy, tea making sessions and the grandeur of Chinese opera. Alternatively, opt to absorb the energy and excitement of Malaysia’s Indian culture and traditions at the majestic Batu Caves and the bustling streets of Little India in Brickfields. Take in the exotic aromas, bright saris, kaleidoscopic flower garlands and multi-hued spices while being entertained by graceful traditional dancers, singers and musicians.

Experience the traditions that live on in many of the tribal communities at the Sarawak Cultural Village and Mari Mari Cultural Village in Borneo. Explore a typical village, admire the ornate tribal tattoos, drink the local ‘jungle juice’ known as ‘Tuak’ and participate in the native dancing and singing activities.

Travel back in time

‘Spice Market’ is a conceptual event that will take participants back 600 years to the era of the Malacca Sultanate, where a thriving spice market is enacted complete with Malay, Arab, Chinese, Indian, Javanese and Burmese traders. The cultural and historical experiences are heightened in Central Market, as visitors bargain with traders speaking in different languages.

Your corporate team can also relive the colonial era of old Malaysia; a time when planters established cash crops, and swashbuckling adventurers made their fortune. Dress for an occasion of opulence, sumptuous food and classic entertainment in a grand colonial mansion.

Team Building Events

With a wide range of places and activities available, meeting and event planners can tailor-make their perfect team building trip to meet their goals. Ranging from ‘soft’ to ‘extreme’ activities, Malaysia can enrich the mind, body and soul.

Learn new skills from the masters

The best way to get to know a country is to absorb its culture. Malaysia is like a microcosm of Asia, so there are lots of opportunities to build team spirit with an injection of unique local flavours.

One of the best ways to immerse oneself in a country’s culture is through its cuisine. Indulge in local delicacies collectively with Masak-Masak, which means ‘Play Cook’ in Malay. Masak-Masak is an activity that requires clarity and creativity as a team. Face off against judges and your peers in the friendly competition of a delightful cook-out session.

Feel the rush of adrenaline

For those in favour of activities which will definitely give a rush of blood to the head, your organisation may opt for dragon boat racing. Dating back 2,000 years, dragon boat racing was a way for villagers to show their prowess in competing against their neighbours. Relive these days by racing your colleagues as a drummer beats out a stroke and sets the pace.

Testimonials

Dr Nils E Billo

Dr Nils E Billo

International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease

Malaysia provided a compelling setting for the 43rd Union World Conference on Lung Health that brought together views from around the world to call for action against lung disease. With more than 2,600 delegates attending the conference, we truly consider this an excellent turnout since these are difficult times economically for many public health organisations and advocates. We would love to come back here to continue spreading the message on this very important issue.

Anouk Rey

International AIDS Society

The IAS Conference on Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention rotates around the world and when it came to Asia’s turn, we felt Kuala Lumpur possessed all the ingredients needed to organise a great scientific conference. Not only is Kuala Lumpur easily accessible within Asia, it also has a beautiful and centrally located convention centre and an excellent range of accommodation. The people are very kind, very service oriented and always ready to help.

Rob Yates

Wounds International

The Malaysian Conference was an absolute success, and has raised the profile of Malaysia and the MSWCP in Asia and beyond. Additionally, we have seen a huge increase in visitors to our global website from Malaysia in particular, with users downloading and using our wound care training materials, which we feel sure will impact positively on the treatment that local patients receive.

Kent Yu

Perfect China

The process of organising an event in Malaysia is nothing short of seamless. As organiser of the Perfect China Oversea Seminar 2015, we worked closely with the DMC and Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) despite being separated by distance. The trust and precision level is high, leaving us with very little to worry about. We will not hesitate to plan our events in this beautiful country again.
