Treasure Hunt | Malaysiakini turns 20

Treasure Hunt

Seek the truth

From Petaling Jaya to Penang

The ‘Seek the Truth’ treasure hunt requires participants, in teams of two to four, to travel by car from Petaling Jaya to Penang in “search of the truth.”

The hunt will kick off at Malaysiakini’s office in Petaling Jaya and embark on a 350km journey to Penang, with stops in different towns along the way.

Leaving at the crack of dawn from the @KINI office, participants will seek to unravel mysteries and unearth the hidden on the way up north.

The treasure hunt is open for the public. There is a limit on how many vehicles can join, so do put together a team and sign up for a spot here.

“This hunt is different from other treasure hunts. While it is filled with the usual code-cracking as well as twists and turns, it will also take participants through a historical journey,”
