Hari Merdeka, Malaysia’s Independence Day, is celebrated every year on August 31. It’s definitely a colorful, festive time to be in Kuala Lumpur or traveling anywhere in Malaysia!This year, the National Day falls on a Saturday, and the annual parade is set to take place in Putrajaya. The theme for the 2019 National Day is ‘Sayangi Malaysiaku: Malaysia Bersih’ (Love Malaysia: A Clean Malaysia). The theme of the 2019 National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations is to stress the importance of unity and patriotism for the well-being of the people and shared prosperity. If you’ve never been to the parade, you can expect a royal procession, cultural performances, military demonstration, intricate floats, sporting events, and more! Just remember not to leave any litter behind! Prior to that, lots of politicians and VIPs take their turns at the microphone on stage, then the fun begins.

In 2018, the parade was moved to Putra Square, a square in Putrajaya just south of the city. Get there in the morning or you may not find room to stand!
