I-City

Snow in Malaysia? Yes, it’s possible. Take the kids to Snowalk at i-City for something completely different.

This is a technology park located on the outskirts of Shah Alam. At night the place comes alive with an amazing forest of man-made trees brightly illuminated with millions of colourful LED lights.

 

They call this the City of Digital Lights.

For children it is a fairy tale wonderland and even for middle aged guys like me the effect is very impressive.

Next to the forest of lights is Snowalk which is an indoor snow park where visitors can escape from the tropical heat for a while and experience 5 degree temperatures. For some Malaysians who have never seen snow before it is a novel experience. If you are from Canada or Russia you will be less impressed but it is still worth a visit.

Inside Snowalk you will find igloos, ice houses, slides, a mini-bobsled run, snowmen, ice penguins, a bar made of ice (no drinks served), various ice sculptures and plenty more LED lights.

Warm jackets are provided (included in the entrance price). Trousers and boots can be rented at additional cost.

 Back outside in the warm air there are other attractions at i-City. These include a reptile house, Laser Warzone (a laser tag game), amusement arcade/indoor fun fair games, souvenir shops, food stalls, shops, a full size cinema screen (showing some Van Diesel film during our visit) and a range of restaurants.
 There was a giant Xmas tree and a few reindeer made from LED lights and some Chinese New Year lanterns hung across the street even though our visit was in June. It would definitely be best to visit this place at Xmas to soak up the seasonal atmosphere but even in June it was packed with visitors (though it was a school holiday).

Shah Alam Lake Gardens

Shah Alam, the state capital of Selangor, is a modern planned city with construction starting during the 1960s. At its centre are the Lake Gardens where a number of imposing landmarks are clustered around a couple of man-made lakes.

The attractively landscaped Lake Gardens are well suited for making another of our city walking trails lasting a few hours and covering most of the main tourist sites.

You can park your car (or get dropped by the taxi) somewhere near the Blue Mosque and take a circular route passing the places marked on this map.

The massive Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque, known more simply as the Blue Mosque, dominates the skyline of the city centre. Its minarets reach 142m and were among the world’s tallest when the mosque was first constructed.

Nearby is the Sultan Alam Shah Museum which contains interesting displays on the history, natural history, culture and heritage of Selangor. Admission is free. The cool dark interior makes a refreshing break from the sweltering heat outside.

Across the street you can see the Royale Theatre building with its distinctive steeply sloping roof design. During my visit the building appeared to have never been used since it was completed in 2008. Perhaps it will be open during your visit.

There are footpaths going all the way around the lakes where you can enjoy picnics, kiddies’ playground areas and boating activities.

A popular water theme park, Wet World, is also located on the lake’s edge. There is a seafood restaurant nearby with a wooden deck which juts out over the water. The food was not bad.

In truth, the landscaping of the Lake Gardens is inferior to the newer and better designed lakes in Putrajaya. Also some of the city’s 1960s-era landmark buildings such as the Museum are in need of a makeover. But if you are in the area, or have a spare day to kill, the Lake Gardens are worth a visit.

Still in the vicinity, the Malaysia Agricultural Park has a number or facilities for families including a mini zoo, Skytrex adventure park with aerial ropeways, cycling, kayaking and jungle walks. It is too far away to be part of the Lake Gardens walking tour but you can find its location on the interactive map above.

Another famous landmark is the massive Shah Alam Sport Complex with its huge 69,000 capacity stadium used for football and other events (this is also marked on the map).

While in Shah Alam you might also want to take a look at i-City. Here you can experience a winter wonderland in Snowalk and admire an amazing forest of lights.


Trick Art Museum @ i-City

The ancient art of trompe l’oeil has been brought to Malaysia and is now on display at the Trick Art Museum, a recent addition to i-City‘s range of family entertainment activities in Shah Alam.

Here your eyes play tricks on your mind as two dimensional paintings have been skilfully rendered by artists to make them appear as three dimensional.

As you can imagine from this exterior shot, it is a fairly small museum with 8,000 square feet of space on two floors:

The illusionism paintings have been divided into 5 themes:

  • Masterpieces
  • Egyptian
  • Marine Life
  • Animal Kingdom
  • Modern Classics

The optical illusions are created by the clever painting of shadow and action outside the perimeter of the picture frames. So for example in the painting at the bottom of this page, a tea-cup is painted on the wall outside the frame which gives the perception of reality to the scene. Well placed lighting enhances the 3D effect.

Traditional trick eye art is usually just for viewing and appreciation but, at this museum, visitor participation is required to obtain the full effect by posing alongside the paintings as you can see from this example:

Photography is not only permitted, it is encouraged!

There are similar museums in Japan, Korea and Philippines among other countries but this is the first in Malaysia.

It is a great place to bring the children to spark their creativity and imagination and perhaps trigger an appreciation of art.
