Travel Diaries: I-City, Shah Alam

I’ve been to I-City a few times before, but it’s still a place I’d bring guests to visit whenever they’re in Malaysia. Situated in Shah Alam, the amusement park of sorts comes to life at night with brightly coloured neon lights on real and artificial trees. Some are designed to look like the Winter Sonata trees pavilion on Nami Island in Korea.

It would be a romantic stroll if it wasn’t so hot. @-@ Despite that, there were many couples at the place.

Electricity bill much

Viewing the trees themselves are free, but there is practically no public transport to the place, so you’d either have to take a cab or drive. You can park in the basement for a fee.

They used to only have trees, but they’ve expanded to add lots of other attractions, where you have to pay to enter. These include carousels, a few rides, a giant Ferris wheel, a Snowhouse, interactive 3-D art trick art museum and the latest addition, a ‘Red Carpet’ wax museum. While nothing at all like Madame Tussauds in London, I guess this is good enough for those of us who can’t just fly off to the UK.

If you’re bored of shopping malls and don’t mind getting a little sweaty, why not drop by at I-City? After you start seeing light spots in front of your eyes, you can take a break at the numerous mamak stalls and cafes around the area.
