Malaysia celebrates the Hungry Ghost Festival with a rather modernized twist. Live performances and concerts scatter around the countries’ major cities, thus making it unique and stand out among the other countries that celebrate the same festival. These live shows are locally known as ‘Koh-Tai’ by the Hokkien-speaking people. These are performed by a group of singers and dancers on a temporary stage set up within a residential district. Various prayers, religious activities, opera performances, and puppet theaters will be conducted throughout the month at various venues.
