Other than being a one-stop tourist centre for foreign and local tourists, MaTiC keeps visitors engaged with its calendar of events. One interesting one is the 1Malaysia KL Family Fair, happening EVERY Saturday from 4pm to 11pm.

These events are FREE and everyone is welcomed! All you have to do is go to MaTiC at the time and date of the event and join in the fun!
For the 1Malaysia KL Family Fair, expect varieties of items are on sale and these include handicrafts, garments and apparels, accessories, food and beverages, car boot sale, free training of “Cuti-cuti 1Malaysia” dance and many more.

Now if you’re in the city on the 31st of August, come join me for some patriotic fun at MaTiC.

    Oh a Malaysian born and bred and a KLite and I didn’t know what was MATIC for!
    So you’ll be there on Merdeka? The whole day?

  2. Sean Eat Drink KL

    heheh, convenient for me, that’s the monorail station that has a stop just outside my office 😀

  3. Chew Mei Ling

    I went once, bought a foreign friend. No one was around, the place was eerily quiet.
    I didn’t know there was activities every weekend!

  4. Gigi

    Where would all the people who go to the fair park? That area is horrendous

  5. Alan

    I had same experience as Chew Mei Ling about 4 years ago. I went to look for a restaurant which used to be in that bungalow. I admit my Lonely Planet guide may have been out of date then!! Have a good one Becks, xx mwaaah!

  6. Brenna

    This place seems to be a waste of space.

  7. Gayathri

    MATIC to promote Malaysia? Seems that MATIC needs some promotion for itself before it can promote our country!

  8. Amber

    Will bring my couchsurfing friends here!

  9. daniel

    I was there yesterday with some couchsurfers and they really enjoyed the cultural show!
    I wonder if it’s the same every week?
    Thanks for the heads up becky.

  10. Holly

    Good idea from daniel and Amber. The couchsurfers who are mostly backpackers would benefit greatly from these activities and services.
