Malaysia is fast becoming a popular leisure destination with attractions, activities and more than one luxury hotel. In Sepang Gold Coast, for example, you will find an upmarket tourist precinct that features a visitor friendly mushroom farm, water sports and several eateries. There is also accommodation in the vicinity, provided by properties like AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort.
Headed towards Petaling Jaya, about twenty minutes from Kuala Lumpur, you will find the magical Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. Plan to spend a day at the park enjoying water drenched slides as well as other non-watery theme park rides. The park is open every weekday, except Tuesday from 11am to 6pm and on weekends from 10am to 6pm. The park spans eighty acres that are divided up into five different zones of fun and entertainment.
Jump into the most popular wet and wild section with the largest artificial surf beach in the world. Practice your surfing skills or take a lesson in the wave pool, brave the dizzying six-lane water slide or spin around in loops. Young children are sure to enjoy the watery African village, complete with Masai warriors. Next head to Scream Park, and try not to be scared by the zombies, ghosts and vampires who will come out to greet you. There are plenty of interactive games and exhibits all designed for thrills and chills! If scary or wet are not your idea of fun, try the Adventure park that offers adventures which include cowboys and Red Indians or set sail on the choppy seas aboard a pirate ship that rises above the ground and swivels violently. Walk along the suspension bridge that towers over the entire theme park before heading for the most daring rides. Try your hand at archery, paintball, rock climbing or steel yourself as you get strapped in for a bungee jump experience.
