Travellers to Malaysia can experience the excitement of the Monsoon Cup sailing event in Terengganu next month.
The prestigious international regatta will take place in Pulau Duyong between November 22nd and 27th 2011 and will see top sailors from around the world competing for titles.
Since its introduction in 2005, the cup has had a transformative effect on the local area, turning the previously quiet Pulau Duyong into a thriving hub for water sports, dining, tourism and souvenirs.
As the second-biggest sporting event in the country, it regularly attracts celebrity and VIP guests, with the likes of Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh and George Benson attending in previous years.
Accompanying the racing itself is Karnival Monsoon, a programme of activities for all the family that commenced on September 30th and will run all the way through to the end of the tournament.
Events include sailing and kayaking activities, beach football and netball tournaments, quizzes, colouring contests for kids and karaoke competitions.
Sailing enthusiasts can choose from a generous selection of Malaysia hotels at, such as the Ri-Yaz Heritage Marina Resort & Spa, the venue for the Monsoon Cup.
