Are you in Malaysia and looking for some fun activities to do with your friends and family? I’ve got a recommendation for ya!
During our stay in Malaysia, my friends and myself dedicated one whole day to explore and have fun at Sunway Lagoon. I must say that this place is a good bonding place for friends and families. There are so many attractions and shops. Sure, it’s crowded because this theme park is sooooo huge, but you will really have a good time here if you visit it with friends. For Filipinos, I can compare this place to Splash Island and Enchanted Kingdom and Star City combined.
There are a lot of parts to visit and a lot of activities to do. Aside from the water parks and rides, there are ATVs and archery ranges.
Sunway Lagoon Amusement Park
This is the dry part of the park. Shops, food kiosks, and rides suitable to kids are found here. To my surprise, the dancers in one part of the park are Filipinos. They recognized me as a Filipino because I was wearing my school shirt that day. Cool!
See? It looks like a typical happy theme park.
Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park
This is the part with extreme rides. Call me a loser but I did not try any of these haha! It’s been 20+ years of existing in this planet and yet I never found joy and excitement over trying extreme rides like the ones in theme parks. I would rather chase for adrenaline somewhere.
So here at Sunway Lagoon, I’d rather chill at the beach area.
Sunway Lagoon Water Park
This is the largest area in Sunway Lagoon. It consists of water playgrounds and several pools that are suitable for all ages. Please note that they do not allow denim shorts in all pool areas. The lifeguards are strict and vigilant enough to refuse entry of those not wearing the proper swimming attire.
How did I know about this important information? I was wearing a damn denim shorts when I went here. I did not bother bringing any swimwear. I forgot I have a cycling shorts which I was wearing underneath my dress when I took the flight, but man, I totally forgot about it. Fml.
I checked out the swimwears being sold at shops inside Sunway Lagoon, but they were unsurprisingly overpriced. Like I said, let’s just proceed to the beach area.
This artificial wave pool looks like a real beach and I did not mind spending hours at the shore. Since the sun is not that hot that day, I was even able to sleep while my friends are trying out the extreme rides. According to sources, it is Asia’s largest wave pool. Near the pools are shops and lockers where you can leave your valuables while swimming.
See? It’s more peaceful here! I’m really getting older, damn.
When we get older, we tend to get easily drained from too much social activity and we constantly tend to seek some peace and quiet away from this complicated world and life.
Sunway Lagoon is really worth your time and money. There are many parts that we were not able to visit, and I was hoping to come back next time to try the other parts, such as the Scream Park, the Wildlife Park, and the Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon. While it is more enjoyable to experience if you have friends and/or family with you, I do not discount the possibility that you can also enjoy it alone. I highly recommend not missing this place if you happen to travel to Malaysia. Thumbs up!
