Federal Territory Day Celebration 2011

January 29, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Not many Malaysians would realise that come 1st February 2011, the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur will be celebrating the 37th anniversary of its founding. This year’s celebrations, however, have already begun, kicking off with the official launch at 7:30am at Merdeka Square, Kuala Lumpur on 29th January 2011. The annual parade features 92 contingents and among the highlights of the day will be the launch of the new Federal Territory song Maju dan Sejahtera.

The celebrations are happening at Merdeka Square

This year’s earlier celebrations were moved up possibly due to its proximity with Chinese New Year on 3rd February. Early estimates are that at least 10,000 people attended the celebrations. In conjunction with the Federal Territory Day Celebration, the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has prepared several discounts and promotions for the public. These include ree membership to the Kuala Lumpur Library for the month of February and a 50 percent discount on rental on DBKL sports facilities for the entire month of February.

Other business entities in Kuala Lumpur are also offering discounts as part of the celebrations. Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is offering a 50 percent discount off its entry fee for Malaysians only, while Kuala Lumpur Tower is offering an RM10 package for groups of 5 or more Malaysians for visits to the observation deck, and 20 percent off its combo package (auditorium/cultural village and observation deck) for every visitor. These promotions are only valid for 1st February 2011.

Getting around Kuala Lumpur on Federal Day will be easy as KL Hop On and Hop Off Buses will be offering a 50 percent discount to foreigners. In the spirit of patriotism, Malaysian citizens will get to ride for free! So make sure you take this opportunity to take this unique bus tour of Kuala Lumpur on Federal Territory Day!
