Johor’s $3.2m Dragon Opens


A huge dragon, “The Prosperity Dragon” is vying for records in a small town in Johor, Malaysia.

The 106.9m-long dragon tunnel is the latest addition to the tourism boom in Malaysia.

Probably the biggest dragon tunnel in the country and possibly the world, the creature covers just over a hectare of the Green Garden of Che Ann Khor Yong Peng Association grounds at Taman Kota Impian.

The RM8m (S$3.2m) dragon took three years to build and the interior of the hollow structure is decorated with Chinese cultural and religious paintings.

Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar launched the dragon tunnel at a glittering ceremony alongside his son,  Tunku Temenggong Tunku Idris Iskandar and 5, 000 invited guests.
