Southville Tourism Students Discover Malaysian Cultural Treasures

Fourth-year Tourism students from Southville International School and Colleges ventured to the historical marvels of Malaysia last September 6-8. It’s in this way that SISC lived up to its commitment to achieve excellence in academics even outside the four walls of the classroom, and be exposed to a different culture and environment.

During their first day in Kuala Lumpur, the Old King’s Palace is their first stop, followed by a visit to the present residence of the King of Malaysia, the new King’s Palace. Next, is the National monument which is Malaysia’s version of Luneta Park. To cap off the group’s first day in Malaysia, they went sightseeing in the famous Petronas Twin Towers. For the second day they boarded the bus for a three-hour drive to Melacca which is one of the fourteen states of Malaysia and is considered a World Heritage site. It’s also known as the “Old Malaysia” and served as the highlight of the tour as it has something to do with its historical importance.

Through this they were able to acquire profound knowledge of tourist destinations and attractions in the country known as Truly Asia-Malaysia. For the students, it’s their 3 days of ultimate travel to wisdom as they explore the dynamic and astonishing streets of Malaysia. Throughout the entire educational tour, the mixture of history and modern culture were felt by the participants. It was an authentic Asian experience for encountering history, culture and tradition that is similar to ours. This trip gave them more knowledge than books and was a “living” educator for 3 memorable days.
