The year of 2017 will definitely a great and prosperous year for all the Malaysians. It is not only the year where Malaysia celebrate the 60th year of independence, the Southeast Asian multi-sport event which is SEA Games 2017 that will be held between 19th and 31st August 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will also a landmark occasion and a source of pride for all Malaysians. This is the sixth time Malaysia host the games and the last time was 16 years ago. Looking at the calendar, it's already the third week of August. The 29th SEA Games is around the corner and I'm sure that everyone especially Malaysian is excited with this momentous event!
The motto of SEA Games 2017: "Rising Together" which signifies the coming of age for Southeast Asia as a community. Kuala Lumpur 2017 (KL2017) is the brand name of the 29th Southeast Asian Games and the 9th ASEAN Para Games. It will be an important milestone in the ASEAN region because it is the first SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games to be held after the formation of the ASEAN Community in 2015.
Well, back to a few days ago when I was chatting online with my secondary school friend who is currently studying in the United Kingdom. She mentioned about SEA Games to me. It is not surprising because she used to be a fun and active girl who loves sports and outdoor activities. Moreover, Malaysia is the host of SEA Games for this time and this makes her even more wishful to go back Malaysia and celebrate this event together with some of her friends all the way from UK. She asked me is there any good way to travel back Malaysia at minimum cost since all of them are still full-time students. While assisting her, I found that Traveloka (https://www.traveloka.com/en-my) is actually a good source for anyone to attend SEA Games 2017 and travelling at a cost-saving and convenient way.
