Wau Bulan

Best Ewan Trip Travel Guide And Transporter


Wau Bulan is a Malaysia moon-kite, so-called because the kite’s tail is shaped like the moon’s crescent. Decorated with floral and leave motifs, wau bulan was traditionally played in the rural areas of Kedah, Perlis and Kelantan, usually after farmers finish working in the fields. Wau Bulan still exists in today’s society with other Malaysian designs, such as wau kucing (cat kite) and wau merak (peacock kite). Annual kite festivals, such as Pasir Gudang World Kite Festival and Melaka International Kites Festival, are held in Malaysia to showcase the participants’ skills in flying their most beautiful kites in the sky.
