The Bintulu Kite Festival is a magnificent yearly event created and headed by “Sia” and held in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia (Borneo).
Now into its 11th year, this colourful extravaganza is held for 5 days in mid September at the old Bintulu airport and draws in big crowds!
The wonderful photos in this post are taken by local, award-winning photographer Tong Teck Ping, from the neighbouring town of Sibu, who travels up to Bintulu specially to take photos of this spectacular festival.
If you are ever in the area it is well worth making the journey to witness the fabulous and diverse creations, which are made especially for the festival.
Participants are from all over Malaysia and the world!
It is an amazing experience for the whole family, regardless of age.
