Do you ever just go blank when it comes to going out during the festive season? Well if you are someone who would do anything to avoid the jam, then you should head down to Sunway Velocity mall this Chinese New Year. With so much of activities to participate in, the mall that is now transformed into a paddy field will blow your minds away.
Take a glimpse of Sekinchan with the Spring Festival theme
Sekinchan is a beautiful place to visit and that is known for their golden paddy fields. If distance and traffic ain’t your best friend then fret not as this year’s CNY theme at Sunway Velocity is all about those crops. Happening from now to until 9 February, the mall is paying tribute to the initial traditions of the festival that is called chunjie (春节), or the Spring Festival. With their exceptional interior, it is hard to deny that it looks almost like the well-known tourist attraction.
Aside from the paddy field, the popular Sekinchan Wishing Tree is one spot you shouldn’t miss out on if you are an active Instagrammer. Head over to the tree and make a wish for a prosperous start this year. In addition to that, you can also head to the mini rice factory for photos that is perfect for Instagram.
With the mall decked up with amazing decorations, the copy of an authentic Chinese Malaysian village house from Sekinchan is one spot you should not miss out. So detailed to the point that it does not feel like a set at all.
