I have been to the MAHA annual event many years ago when my children were still young. There so much things to see, play, explore and eat while spending our family time together at MAHA event. For those who have not been to MAHA before, I suggest you should take some time off during this weekend to pay a visit with your family or friends.

Well, let's take you on a quick tour of my day trip ~ being out and about at MAHA 2016. Come follow me to eat, play and explore the whole new attractions MAHA 2016 have to offer to you this time!

Surrounded by lush greenery and well-kept grounds, the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS) offers the perfect setting for MAHA 2016. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this unique venue provides a relaxing environment for visitors to enjoy the event. One of the largest exhibition complexes in Asia, MAEPS boasts a total floor space of 42,000 square metres spread across several exhibition halls. Its comprehensive range of facilities and services includes various agricultural showgrounds and park attractions.

The MAHA 2016 event, that takes place together with The Farmers, Livestock Producers and Fishermen’s Day (HPPNK) programme, actively promotes agriculture and agro-based industries, showcasing all the different components of this fast-growing industry.

NAFAS CUBE @ Mardi
My first pit stop is at the Nafas Cube @ Mardi ~ A brand new concept of accommodation where guests can stay at the calm and peaceful agro park for a short getaway. This is a collaboration between Mardi and National Farmers Organization (NAFAS) for everyone to get a taste of rural living away from the city and be back into nature to unwind and destress altogether.    

Lovely Place To Stay For A Short Getaway

(VVIP) – RM 250

Guests can choose to stay in Nafas Cube Tents, Tubes and Containers based on your budget and liking. I was told that prices are quite affordable from RM 120 to RM250 per night. Families should opt for the adjoining container where mum and dad can have privacy in their own 'room' whereby kids can stay at another adjoining room next door where they are linked together.

Nafas Cube Tubes

I loved the concept of the built up of the hotels, seriously. Using only steel containers and large cement tube, the whole place was built and transformed into chic and colourful pleasant park within 2 months. A wonderful, fresh and green concept which I believe appeals to everyone!

If you like to camp out for a different experience, choose their tents to be nearer to the nature. The NAFAS Cube tents are laid as camping site along the lake.

Oh yes, food time! While we were chilling at the fisheries department, we check out a sate stall not selling chicken or beef sate but instead they are grilling a whole new type of Tuna Sate. Loved this Sate Tuna as it's rich in nutrients and omega 3 fatty acids. Remember to check it out!
