Deepavali (also known as Diwali or Divali) is a festival of lights that falls on the fifth of November in 2010. The festival is a day when followers of the Hindu religion join together in prayer and celebration.

The event, which celebrates the victories of good over evil or the triumph of the light is marked with candles, lanterns and fireworks and is accompanied by family reunions and public festivities.
Many Hindu families will host an open house with relatives and neighbours welcome to join them for traditional treats while in public areas the religious holiday is celebrated with parades and shows including dance, music lanterns and fireworks. The day is a revelation to visitors to the region offering a great insight into Hindu culture, while Hindus will travel to be near friends and family for the event.

Lek Boonlert, Head of Marketing at said: "Deepavali is traditionally a time of high demand for accommodation in areas such as Kuala Lumpur where there is a large Hindu community.
With both visitors and Malaysian looking to secure accommodation in the capital during this important festival, finding a hotel in Kuala Lumpur for the Deepavali period is a priority for anyone looking to travel. Booking early for the time around Deepavali is a good idea if travellers wish to obtain the best choice of rooms."
