Many of us were anticipating this event when it comes to Chinese New Year. FGS Dong Zen (佛光山) has become the most attractive icon in Malaysia. As usual, the main iconic this year is Marvelous Malaysia Tiger Lantern.

Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zhen Temple

CNY Lantern & Flora Festival

I always wanted to visit this place every year … hence it’s my second year in a row. I went on third day of CNY lunar calendar, but still encountered a huge crowd, especially in the late afternoon. Many were flocking into the place for pray, leisure, take photo and also family hangout.

Human bumper-to-bumper happened in most area where it was impossible to stop for photo shooting. You imagine how stuffy it is. Tension.

To go there, I used KESAS highway from KL. I paid RM6.60 in 3 plaza tolls for one way only. Used to turn left when you see Banting/Klang interchange. There are 15km to reach FGS from the interchange. Signboard is available along the way.
