It’s that time of the year again where streets and buildings are decorated with shimmering and glowing lights.

Get yourself in the Christmas mood by immersing yourself in the festive vibes! A few recommended places to start from will be 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Central i-City, Bangsar Shopping Centre, and Sunway Pyramid.
