Last few days, my friend asked me about this Light Festival that I didn't know the existence around Melaka at the moment as it announced through Facebook. She asked me to join her that night so since I am doing nothing at home, I did agree to join her that night. We took our way there after Maghrib, around 8:30 pm we reached our destination at Hang Tuah Centre.
The parking entrance fee is just RM 1 so it was not a big deal for us. The ticket fee to enter the Light Festival is RM 5 per head, free for kids below 3 and for senior citizens. Well, since I went there on weekend, the packs were insane, but still bearable. The festival space is not big but still afford to welcome such amount of people.
To be frankly honest, the lights are beautiful. I mean, it's worth for just RM 5 to have such quite reasonable view there. Although, I am not really satisfied as it has a lot to improve. Apart from the 'beautiful' light structure you see, there are parts that I wish they can fix. Well, what I know is that this Light Festival at Hang Tuah Centre will be held until this 25 August, so Malaccan, you still have time to visit this Light Festival! So, here are some photos at the Light festival.
This is part (picture below) of the Light Festival that I think needs improvement. Apart from having a very dim light, the setup is also bad for me. Arrangement of the lights sucks, I've tried to take a lot of picture here on different angle and it still looks bad. The moment I saw this part, I was a bit disappointed because this spot is the most popular among all.
There are several activities for you and your family to enjoy other than taking pictures here. There are mini fun arcade games & inflatable playground. I must say that it is just worth with just RM 5 for entrance fee. Apart from the games & all, there are also booth that sells food and drinks and space to eat! It is not that big but quite compatible for guests.
What can I say overall of this Light Festival, it is worth to spend your 5 ringgit notes here. It is quiet fun and worth it. Besides, it is Instagram worthy, I don't think I wasted my time here, well it is beneficial for me & my Instagram. Since I went during school holiday, my sister got to join me along that day, so it was worth to bring her there since she's in a boarding school.
The only part I wish they could improve is the light quality as I stated above & I would prefer if they could have an initiative to make a line for people to take pictures. I was pissed by a lot of people who cut the queue, I was like damn man, this is just too much. I made my queue but there's a lot of people being selfish, or maybe they just don't care, what a selfish human being, but I really wish they could fix it, so it will be easier for everyone.
