Melaka, Malaysia, November 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Inside the city, in the Bandar Hilir area, residents will be gathering for a huge party being set up by government and city representatives. A special countdown system will be in operation where people can watch as the clocks ticks round to midnight on 31st December 2010.
During the evening, as the night crosses over into 2011, local bands and musicians will be entertaining audiences with traditional and modern songs accompanied by dancers and performers. Street stalls will also be selling classic Malaysian dishes such as nasi lemak, a portion of rice in coconut milk and the famous sambal belacan, which is a shrimp paste that goes with almost anything.
Along with the music there will also be a lucky draw where entrants can get the chance to win a number of prizes to be handed out on the night.
People planning on heading to the city for the festivities and searching for hotels are likely to find that the parties planned attract more visitors and finding the right accommodation may be more difficult than usual.
"DirectRooms.com is offering a wide range of accommodation with good rates for hotels in Melaka
during the event, however people are advised to book it early as the demand of hotel rooms is getting high," Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com commented.
