[Malaysia] Citrawarna 2016 and more things to do in KL

Citrawarna 2016

September, 2016
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


I have been contacted from Gaya Travel from Malaysia to joined the Citrawarna 2016 (It is like a festival of light and celebration) and of course I accepted the invitation to join with 30 bloggers/media from SEA and again I am the only Thai and it's no problem for me as always.

The Citrawarna 2016 held at Merdeka square, there ware lots of people come to watch the 4 hours long show. Most of the show are dancing and lighting, start from 8PM. - 12.00AM. The only problem for me is the weather that quite hot but its ok by the way. For more information click here http://www.motac.gov.my/en/citrawarna2016

Not only Citrawarna 2016, we've got at chance to watch the show at MUD KL, Mud KL is a drama show on stage to show how Malaysia in the beginning become Malaysia nowadays. It is about 1 hour show held at MUD theatre, Merdeka Square.

We also walk to KL night market to explore KL lifestyle and to eat some KL street food. What I like most is deep fried chicken sprinkled with some spicy herb powder.

This is a type of local shell sell at the market. My Malaysian friend tole me that this shell is very delicious and it is special food for local people but I haven't got at chance to try it yet.


This place call Kampong Bharu - it mean the old city of Kuala Lumpur, it is a place for tourist to visit and to see how KL live in the past.


This place call Upside Down House KL, located near the KL tower. It was fun here because everyone try to think for creative pose as much as they can.


Grilled fish, so delicious. I found this shop at the food court near Kampong Bharu. The price is cheap, they sell this fish with rice and some stir fried vegetable.


One good activity in KL is to visit KL Bird Park - the park claimed the world largest free flight walk-in Aviary.

[Hong Kong] Fly direct from Chiang Mai and enjoy yourself at the Ocean Park


I plan this trip with supported from Hong Kong Express and Ocean Park Hong Kong who sponsored me and my family for airplane tickets and premium tickets for this theme park.


Fly direct from Chiang Mai to Hong Kong just for 2.30 hours then take taxi (it is no Grab taxi??) from the airport to our hostel "Wontonmeen"

Where to stay?

Wontonmeen - The first floor of this hostel is a coffee shop and also relaxing area, the hostel located in Jordan district that surrounded with local Hong Kong houses and apartments. So, it is good to walk around to see how they live and also good to try real HK street food


So exhausted because we did a lot of walk and walk


Hellooooooo HK, Here we come!!

We also stay at Best Western Hotel Hobour View, located in Sai Yin Pun where is very good location for walking around to explore HK lifestyle. This hotel has it amazing swimming pool on the rooftop where you can enjoy top view of Hong Kong city very clearly.

Where to travel?

We did a lot of walk, using MTR and try to catch Tram as well as walking and the next day we went to visit Ocean Park for the whole day. That was great experience for me and my kids to enjoy the amazing play stations. The premium ticket is very useful for us to by pass the very long line of people waiting in the afternoon. Yes, it cost quite lot but it worth to safe time and energy.


Cable car @ Ocean Park


We spend all our day long just only in Ocean Park.


They have map in English, Chinese and Thai language provide at the Guest Relation center where is on the right side of the entrance.


We also walk to the longest escalator then walk down to the ground to see what is up there and what is it during the way long.


Enjoy craft beer at Craft Brew & Co, Sai Ying Pun district

Tram is another option to travel in Hong Kong, it is quite slow but safe and sure!

There are a lot of art gallery in Central - SOHO district

That is our trip for 4 night 5 day in Hong Kong. Main activity is to focus on the Ocean Park and others is to explore and visit HK people lifestyle and to see its amazing skyscraper. To live in HK, I use Octopus card instead of cash to pay for MTR and buy things at the convenience store and I bought a SIM card for my phone to use the internet from 7-11.

Tips to travel -  it's cheaper to catch taxi instead of using MTR if you are a group of 3-4 people traveling in Hong Kong.
