SEA Games 2017 Ticketing

Kuala Lumpur 2017 Official Logo

On July 4, 2017, the Malaysian Organizing Committee for Kuala Lumpur 2017 has released tickets to 19 sporting events and the opening and closing ceremonies of the South East Asian Games. The games, held on August 19 – 30 this year, will coincide with Malaysia’s independence celebration.

What struck me most is that tickets range from MYR 10 – 20. These tickets are cheap!

What is more important is that most of the sports events are free to the public. I am so relieved because I thought that these tickets would cost me thousands of pesos!

So, if you’re watching the SEA Games this year in Malaysia (like me), you can visit their website (here) or check out the sports events with schedules (here) or directly access the ticketing website (here).

The ticketing website accepts debit and credit card from all countries! See you during the Games!

Truly Asia

This was completely spur of the moment. I was just doing my usual hobby of checking for airfare one afternoon and I found myself booking another flight.

A funny thing about this booking is that the Manila – Kuala Lumpur route of Philippine Airlines starts June 8, 2017. So, effectively, it’s still not yet in their website.

Things that make me excited for this trip:

I’m hoping to witness a lot of great events and be able to watch of couple of games involving the Philippine team.

On another note, I’m hoping to see a lot from Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, and George Town.

Any suggestions on where to go and what to see?
