The History Channel really does have something for every person whether you’re a fan of history, adventure, travel, culture, and even aliens. Of course, all these shows wouldn’t be half as entertaining if it weren’t for the brilliant presenters and characters. Now, you have a chance to meet some of these outstanding characters in the flesh at the History Con Malaysia on 4th to 6th August 2017.
Let’s take a look at some of the exciting things that History Con Asia in Malaysia has to offer fans this year:
1. Blade artistry and kris display
Forged in Fire champion Ryu Lim will be around to conduct a live on-stage demo for the audience to learn the skill and craftsmanship that goes into crafting quality metal weapons.

2. Photography Photo Walk with Justin Mott
Photo Face-Off judge and professional photographer Justin Mott will be taking small groups of photography enthusiasts on an exclusive hour-long photo walk through History Con, giving pro tips on composition, lighting, camera, and more. There will be one walk on Friday and two per day on Saturday and Sunday.
