The 1,600 Pandas World Tour which started in 2008 as a collaboration between WWF and acclaimed French artist Paulo Grangeon, has since appeared in more than 100 exhibitions across various countries such as France, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Malaysia will be the 1,600 Pandas’ third stop after Hong Kong in the Asian region.
The 1600 Pandas World Tour in Malaysia has been done in several places in Malaysia such as Dataran Merdeka, Putrajaya, Batu Caves, Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Taiping Lake, Menara Condong Teluk Intan, Red Square Melaka and National Monument Kuala Lumpur. Finally, it will be settled down at Publika from 13th January to 25th January 2015, and it opens to public from 10am to 10pm.
