When you are having your vacation in Kuala Lumpur, take the opportunity to watch some interesting football matches at the National Stadium located at National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil approximately 20 kilometers south of the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. The National Stadium is home to the national football team. If you are lucky you may watch some international football tournaments held at the stadium occasionally. You may even watch some international friendly matches against the national team at the stadium.
The stadium began construction in 1994 and completed in 1998 at a cost of more than RM500 millions, just in time for Malaysia's hosting of the 16th Commonwealth Games. It was constructed by United Engineers Malaysia Bhd. The stadium was officially opened in 1998. It has a seating capacity for approximately 100,000 spectators, thus making it one of the largest stadiums in the world. It has three spectator tiers and looks very impressive. The stadium occupies a total area of approximately 76,000 square meters of land.
The National Stadium was used for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 16th Commonwealth Games. Malaysia was the first Asian country to host the games where 70 nations with a total of more than 5,000 athletes took part. The stadium was designed to hold a number of events especially track and field and football matches.
A jungle survival course will really show you what exactly you are capable of, and will also teach you a number of things about the jungle and country you are living in. It will also take out all your inhibitions and make you change how you view your life.
Despite finding it really hard, i felt so glad i did it afterwards, and i felt proud that i could say to everyone back home what i did..... and i would do it again....if given the opportunity :D

Just at the northern part of Sungai Petani, about 15 minutes drive from the main trunk road is Cinta Sayang Golf & Country Resort for your golfing delight.
There are also other activities like swimming, archery, squash and line dancing and of course dining.
A new land and water theme park has just opened in December. There are two giant slides but it is hot and good to avoid bad sun burn.
Sungai Petani is a good hour drive from Penang. A limousine taxi from Penang International Airport cost a standard RM90 and 50% surcharge after midnight.
In Malay, "Cinta Sayang" means love and affection. So it is great day for golfing and family and children activities.
4-Wheeling is getting more popular among the yuppies. Seem like every family own a 4WD.
Tracks with various difficult levels found throughout the country sides.
Equipment: Winches & Mud tires are "must have" for tough tracks crossing national parks & logging tracks. Other essential such as Air-Locker, Turbo-charging, snorkels, good suspensions will depend very much on disposable income & seriousness towards this sport.
Consult you tour leader for all the essentials.
If you are happen to own or rent a mean, off-road worthy 4WD machine during your stay in Malaysia. You will find Malaysia a 4-wheeling heaven. Some world toughest treks such as Jeli-Cameron, Bekok-Kg. Peta trails are capable to kill any stock 4WD machine.
These tough trails that pass through national parks are not for the meek, you've been warned!!
Equipment: - Off-road worthy 4WD (no stock machine pls!!)
- Winches (a must)
- Hoe & other offroad preparation
- Mud Tires
- Good suspension system
- Turbo Charged (preferred)
- Snookle (Optional)
- Air Locker (plus point)

Malaysia is one of the sports destinations in the world today !
La Tour de Langkawi,
Formula One Grand Prix,
A lot to mention here but I know some people might have known Malaysia from the sports events that Malaysia has held in the past.
This is a typical scene for every live aboard dive trip that we had. Beers, cig & some grass are just some of the pastime & naughty thing that we do when we’re few nautical miles from all authorities.
This picture is to remember my late dive instructor (1st from the left) whom was killed in his biking hobby.
Diving in the Perhentians certainly lived up to our expectations. There is a great variety of sites to visit as well as a good number of dive shops to choose from. We went with Watercolors and had a good experience. Professional PADI shop that has been up and running for awhile. We only met one of the owners, Ankha (forgive me for the spelling) who is a very warm hostess and patient dive master! It is worthwhile diving with them because their accomodation on Perhentian Kecil is a lovely place to hang out and stay after a day of diving.
Equipment: You can rent everything ----- a good deal that gets better with each dive you do with them.
An annual International Cyclothon , usually spread over a week, covering the whole length ( and breadth ) of West (Peninsular)Malaysia.
Got it's name from Langkawi Island, where it starts and ends usually at Kuala Lumpur . Lately, the event has lost its lustre and sponsors are few. Starting points vary year to year.
Equipment: You don't simply join the Le Tour D'Langkawi unless you're a WORLD-CLASS cyclist .
Perish the thought !
Scuba divers should be heading for Sipadan Island, Sabah, East Malaysia.
That place is reputedly one of the best dive sites in the world.
Please wait while I make a visit and post some REAL photos for you !
I have been tour cycling quite extensively in Malaysia and cycled more than 2000 kilometers around the malatsian peninsula.
I have found Malaysia to be be quite a good place for tour cycling and have really enjoyed my touring there.
The roads are generally of a very good standard and comparable to what you find in Western Europe and traffic is pretty good and drivers quite positive towards cyclists.
The roads mostly have a soft shoulder for pedestrians, cyclists and whatever you might have of soft traffic.
The malaysian peninsula is mostly flat along the coast and if you stick to the coastal areas then you will not be climbing much, so it's not too hard to bike there.
It's different in the middle of the peninsula where you will find mountains and some real challenges for those who like to climb with their bike.
Cycling is quickly becoming a trendy sport in Malaysia and you will most likely experience a lot of positive attention from the locals if you are cycling around the country.
For the past 2 years, I have been taking riding lessons at the Rider's Lodge. With clean stables and well-groomed horses, I have to say the riders are a pampered lot :)
There is a mounting block for the rider to mount the horse. Then, the trainer will adjust the length of the stir-ups and the stable helper will lead the horse into the paddock. The rider juz concentrate on riding and nothing else...
Equipment: Riding helmets are provided.
For intermediate to advanced riders, a pair of gloves and riding boots will enhance your riding experience.
Formula 1 Racing is held annually in Sepang Circuit, Malaysia, it's a 600,000 audience from Britain, Europe, Australia, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Hon Kong, Japan, Korea etc etc International Sport Event.
Equipment: Casual wear with cap, umbrella by skybus.
Malacca is a great place to sail because of the buffers and had wonderful space for jet-skiing.
Equipment: If you sail along the West Coast of Malaysia - you can go along the whole coast or start from Singapore and work up to Thailand! Or you can rent the boats in Singapore.
