All of Singapore celebrates the day the country achieved its independence every 9th of August 9. On the eve of Singapore’s National Day, you’ll want to be by Marina Bay to see all the public displays of culture, diversity, heritage, and the breathtaking fireworks show over the waters, of course!
Penang has a large Buddhist community that the festivities for Wesak Day are unlike anywhere else in the country. Head over to any Buddhist temple on the island to see monks in saffron robes offer their prayers and have flower-filled processions to honor this holy day in May.
As if you needed another reason to visit Borneo, the wild Rainforest World Music Festival, one of Asia’s largest festivals, treats guests to live performances in the middle of the woods. The 3-day concert also has cultural immersions and workshops if dancing isn’t your scene.
