This was originally a SEA Games trip. We were supposed to watch all the SEA Games events that we could. But, unfortunately, it’s the tail end of the season and there weren’t a lot of events to watch. So, we transformed it into a multi-city tour of Malaysia!

We didn’t pack in as much. We wanted to taste a little bit of everything but made sure that the trip to each place was worth it.
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!
