MBI DesaKu 自由游行 Kulim High Tech Park Kedah

MBI DesaKu 自由游行 Kulim High Tech Park Kedah is a favorite brightly light night time garden attraction. The developer has cleverly conceptualized and converted the community open space to photography hot spot.

Over Chinese New Year break, we took a drive to DesaKu. When we went it was fully packed as the local from Kedah love to visit this magical fairyland night.

It was unheard off a few years ago for a property developer to build a “theme” park to attract potential buyers. MBI has done well to create the trend of lighting up their properties in Dannok. The first transformation was a disused hillock behind an old temple into Penang Avatar Secret Garden.

DesaKu is a mixed housing township project located Padang Meha, Kulim.

Family Safe Spot

The attractions are cleverly located within the site and build with ponds and tiny mounds. The place has attractive lights. It may be dark in certain spots. Generally, it is safe for a family to explore. There are seat and benches for the elderly to rest along the way.

Children Safe

There are many youngsters running around without tripping or falling. The displays and statues are set up for little ones to climb or clamber around and pose.

Photography 101 for MBI DesaKu 自由游行 Kulim High Tech Park Kedah

The general ambient light is sufficient for smartphone photography. There is no need for fancy equipment and sophisticated cameras. We saw one or two camera buffs with their tripods and set up initially. Eventually, they too walked around to take photographs with their handheld camera.

Going by car

GPS coordinates: 5.5071° N, 100.6230° E

We found that keeping to the highway is a better option. Although Waze took us on a much shorter route, due to night visibility, we overshot two turnings. Personally, I prefer to use Google Map for directions.

Going by Van

Some of the visitors even rent a van to visit DesaKu! We saw several unmarked parked vans but couldn’t find the passengers to ask for more information.
