August 12, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Holidaymakers travelling in Malaysia during September will be able to enjoy a variety of colourful sights and sounds at the Borneo International Kite Festival.
Taking place in Bintulu, Sarawak, the event is being held between September 22nd and 25th and is the seventh annual occurrence of a cultural celebration that has now been running since 2005.
Organised by the Bintulu Development Authority, it sees bright and unusual-looking kites created by people from around the world filling the air, with the event encompassing competitions, workshops and special performances.
People attending the festival will be able to take in stunt kite displays, as well as learn how traditional kites are created by hand using bamboo and paper.
Bintulu was selected back in 2005 by the chief minister of Sarawak as the venue for this unique event due to the sea breeze that blows across the region, making it perfect for consistent kite flying.
The closure of the old airport also meant that the area has an ideal ready-made site for the festivities.
Those wishing to attend this event can find a wide variety of Malaysia hotels at, such as the ParkCity Everly Hotel Bintulu.
