In this fascinating tropical paradise you will experience not one, but a diversity of Asian cult ures in one single destination;a phenom- enon we take pride in. From the people, to food, sights and sounds, Malaysia is a unique melting pot in Asia.

Here you will discover a delightful f usion of three of Asia's oldest civilisations. A geo-cult ural mix of Malay, Chinese and Indian heritage that are made even more interesting by the assimilation of other cult ures into the fabric of our society. Indigenous cult ures of the Kadazans, Ibans and ethnic groups of Sabah and Sarawak as well as the influence of the British, Port uguese, Dutch and Thais enhance the blending of customs and traditions.

Colourful festivals and car- nivals are very much part and parcel of the Malaysian lifestyle. Distinctly unique, each cult ure continues to pre- serve traditions handed down through the generations;yet all ethnic festivals and carnivals are quintessentially Malaysian. One of the best ways to enjoy sunny and harmoni- ous Malaysia is to join us in our festivals and carnivals.

To celebrate this distinctly Malay- sian heritage, a spectacular parade bearing the theme "Citrawarna Malaysia " meaning "Colours of Malaysia " will be held in Kuala Lumpur from May 26 to June 23, 2002.

The parade is an event that will show- case the rich legacy of arts, cult ure and tradition inherited from our forefa- thers in all its pomp, colour and splen- dour. The mesmerising event, which will be celebrated annually, combines the best of cult ural and artistic mani- festations of the states and ethnic groups of Malaysia. The parade, com- posed of various states and ethnic groups of Malaysia in colourful cos- t umes, will feat ure traditional dances to the melodious strains of traditional music.

People of all races, t ribes and ethnicity will come out in force to pay tribute to their country and their heritage. Under- neath it all, the same spirit burns in all our hearts –of being Malaysian, of being united in diversity, offering a unique form of hospitality. This is tr uly Malay- sia. Come celebrate together with us!
