To usher in the Year of the Rabbit, Malaysia’s premier shopping destination kicks-start the celebration in a grand way with an installation of Malaysia’s Biggest Rabbit Replica made of Gold Coins, as certified by the Malaysia Book of Records 2023.
Measuring 7.5 m in height and featuring auspicious cherry blossoms and vibrant peony flowers, this magnificent display at the KLCC Esplanade, also features the Golden Nugget “Yuan Bao” accompanied by the rest of the other 11 Chinese zodiacs. The colour of the rabbit itself symbolises “gold”, making it significant during this festive period signifying prosperity and good luck.
Meanwhile at the Centre Court, it has been transformed into an ancient Chinese town, inspired by the magnificent ancient cities and villages of China such as Pingle, Dali and Lijiang. Features a traditional Chinese gate tower as its centrepiece, the ancient oriental is surrounded by building structures covered in aged wooden façades with upturned eaves characteristic of traditional Chinese architecture.

Amid the ancient Chinese town setting, visitors will also discover a Wishing Tree where they can share their hopes and aspirations for the new year. In the spirit of the season, monetary donations made at the Wishing Tree will be pledged in support of Suria KLCC’s partner NGOs, in furthering the Mental Health Awareness agenda.
Tradition also gets an update with the sparkling waters of their interactive “river” filled with realistic koi fishes. All our visitors can experience the novelty of flipping virtual coins from the screen of a tablet and into the “river”.
The décor extends to Ramlee Mall, so there are plenty of excellent backdrops for photos. A photobooth providing complimentary photo print-outs and e-copies is also available for shoppers to commemorate festive memories with loved ones.
