It is the Malaysia Day celebration, one of the best cultural things to do in Kuala Lumpur, held nationwide and guests of Apple Hotel can’t have a better place to be in as they are mere minutes away from the Malaysia Day celebration in Dataran Merdeka.

“Malaysia Day is held on September 16 yearly to commemorate the establishment of the Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963. Celebrations are held at various parts of the country.”
