Tourists Gather to Watch the Performance and Extend High Praise
The Divine Land Marching Band performed at a number of tourist sites in Malacca, including the famous A'Famosa, Klebang Beach, Malacca Municipal Council square and Malacca River bank.
Malacca is a well known historical city, where there are many historical landmarks such as buildings, castles, churches and museums with unique characteristics. This year is "Visit Malaysia Year 2007". The Divine Land Marching Band presented exquisite performances, attracting tourists from different countries who took photos. Many people were attracted by the huge banner reading "Falun Dafa"and had a photo taken with the banner and the marching band while making thumbs-up gestures to express their appreciation for the band.
The music played by the Divine Land Marching Band was peaceful, solemn and dignified, permeating the entire A' Famosa. Many tourists gathered to watch, attracted by the music. A tour guide from Vietnam said in an interview, "The band performed so well and wonderfully! Just now I was on the hillside far away but was attracted by rounds of drum and trumpet music. I rushed here to see what was going on, and unexpectedly I found an outstanding band performing." The tour guide watched the wonderful performances and called the tourists to join him. Another coordinator of the tour also complimented the performance and hoped to see the band's wonderful performance next time when he came to Malacca. These tourists from Vietnam warmly cheered and applauded the band. Before leaving, they had a group photo taken with the banner "Falun Dafa" and the marching band.

A tourist from Kuala Lumpu and her friend said that the Divine Land Marching Band performance was full of joy, infusing people with high spirits and vigour. The lady said that the band's performance was superb; they liked it very much and also enjoyed themselves. It was the first time for them to watch such a large scale band performance.
