I-City Shah Alam

Just recently, I got the opportunity to visit the City of Digital Lights also known more commonly as I-City. My friends and I didn't have any problems finding I-City as it is brightly lit up and can be seen from the Federal Highway at night. Even before we got there, we were all very excited. Upon reaching I-City, we were greeted by brightly illuminated, forest man-made trees which were covered with millions of colourful and vibrant LED lights.

Designed by world-renowned architect Jon A Jerde, I-City was designed as a fully integrated intelligent city, with the aim of attracting both local and international investors. It is declared as an International Park, being a tourist hot spot with its City of Digital Lights, Snowalk and various theme park rides.

Looking around, I guess I know why they call it City of Digital Lights. The trees really do come alive at night with the majestic and colourful lights. We took a stroll along the park, occasionally stopping to snap photos of the beautiful light displays. Giant Christmas trees and reindeer sculptures can also be seen here.

The Giant Ferris wheel standing approximately 100m tall can also be seen here in I-City. We all took turns taking photos next to the Ferris Wheel.

Other attractions of I-City include the Snowalk. For those who have never seen snow before, I-City is a perfect place to go. Igloos, slides, a mini-bobsled run, snowmen, ice penguins, a bar made of ice and lots of ice sculptures can be found here. We didn't go to the Snowalk though, as there was a huge crowd lining up outside.

Back outside, we continued strolling, enjoying the view of the park. Food stalls, souvenir shops, funfair, amusement games, Lazer Warzone and even a '6 D Motion Theatre' can be seen along the stretch of I-City.

Before we even know it, time had already past midnight. Tired and exhausted, we all took one last group photo before we left I-City. We all returned back home that night with smiles on our faces and vowed to return back soon.

  5. Hi,

    My name is KC Owens, I’m a college student and I love to travel! While cruising the Internet, I found your site and really enjoyed reading your posts. I have been to countries all over Europe with just my backpack and a camera. Since I am a college student and I have significant bills, it can be difficult to find ways to travel the world. However, I have done this several times, with less than ten pounds of luggage and while on a college dime!

    I was hoping that you would allow me to write a post for your site to share my tips and tricks with your readers. I put a lot of time into my traveling, it is my biggest passion and I would love to inspire others by sharing my stories, mistakes and triumphs. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Best,

    KC Owens

    1. hey KC Owen! Yeah, I wouldn't mind sharing your posts on my blog. I myself love travelling and backpacking. I'm a college student myself and at times my budget would be tight. Still i find ways to get around to do some backpacking.
      Cheers !
