This will be the 11th time, the kite festival will be held in this seaside town of Bintulu. The huge windy open space of the Old Bintulu Airport that faces the South China Sea means ideal consistent flying condition that kiters love. This also explains why four records of magnitude number of kites have been set since its inception in 2005. The latest being 2,500 diamond kites were flown, forming the longest arch kite tunnel of 500 metres which went into the Malaysia Book of Records.
Expect 400 kiters from 25 countries to participate at this festival.
This family-fun event comes with it cultural and artiste performances in the evening. Make a day trip to Similajau National Park as a side-trip.
