Project Chingay 2017



Greetings Members

We are pleased to inform you all that JTGA has embarked on this Mega Project which will bring awareness of JB rich Heritage thru the 24 Festive Drums. 

The most effective way is to participate in the yearly Chingay float procession.

This is the first time any Tourism related organisation has been given the opportunity to participate in the annual Chingay float procession.  As such it will be a wonderful platform  for JTGA members to help to revive , rejuvenate and promote Johor Bahru's  rich Heritage at this event.

The event scheduled for 17th Feb  is also before International Tourist Guides Day which falls on 21st February every  year. JTGA will be seizing this opportunity to have a joint celebration at Johor State level.

Details of the regimented Training Sessions have been set by the Trainers/Drum Masters  from the Drums Cafe who will choreograph  a suitable drum sequence that will depict how the 24 Festive Drums are linked to the rich Heritage of JB.
