2. Official Hotel

 

The extraordinary Berjaya Times Square Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be the Official Hotel of Malaysia Worlds 2015 and we will be housing all of our participants in the same hotel.

 

This 5-star hotel boasts one of the largest living spaces you can find in Malaysian hotels as all standard rooms are accompanied by its own living room. Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and within short walking distance to the monorail station, Berjaya Times Square Hotel will provide our participants great access to many local attractions.

 

It is also directly connected to the colossal Berjaya Times Square Shopping Mall which is the 13th largest shopping mall in the world. It is a massive 7.5 million-sq ft shopping mall that houses an indoor theme park, cinemas, spa facilities, great food and over 1,000 shoplots that will provide for the best Malaysian shopping experience under one roof. It is also in walking distance to great tourist spots such as the Bintang Walk, the Petronas Twin Tower and the Actors’Studio.

 

3. Tournament Venue

 

We have been able to relocate our tournament venue to a newer UT MARA campus located in Puncak Alam. With brand-new, spacious and fully air-conditioned facilities; we are able to provide all of our participants a much more pleasant experience during the preliminary rounds.

 

With five buildings spanning 200 classrooms all connected to each other, participants will enjoy a shorter walking distance to their debate rooms without having to step outside of the building. The location is easy to navigate and one runner will be assigned to each room to ensure that no participant will have to waste away time in locating their debate rooms.

 

4. Malaysia Night in Chennai

 

The Organising Team is fresh off a visit to Chennai and would like to thank the Chennai WUDC Team for their help and hospitality during our stay.

 

We have finalised the arrangements for Malaysia Night and we are happy to announce that it will take place in the luxurious 5-star Le Royal Meridien Hotel.

 

Over twenty different finger-food dishes will be served, including specialty Malaysian cuisine. There will also be a free-flow serving of all kinds of beverages throughout the night. Malaysia Night merchandises will be distributed as well as booths that allow participants to take part in local custom will be set up to give everyone a uniquely Malaysian experience.

 

In the near future, the ratification report by our team will be made available for online circulation and will be distributed during Pre-Council at Chennai Worlds as well.
