JOM! EXPERIENCE PENANG - "The Diversity of Asia"

The recent JOM! Experience Penang campaign launch was held at the Pullman Hotel, KL City Centre. It is a great initiative given Penang is also one of my favourite historical destination besides Malacca. It is indeed a state that qualifies as a world-class holiday destination. We need not look further than our own backyard. 

Touted by CNN as one of the "Best Places to Visit for the Ultimate Asia Experience", Penang also boasts new attractions with world unsurpassed titles such as World’s Steepest Tunnel Track; World's First Tower Curved Skywalk; World's Highest Ropes Course Challenge; World's First Free Standing Vertical Drop Slide; World's Highest Altitude Stressed Ribbon Bridge; Tropical World's First Butterfly & Insect Sanctuary and World's Longest Water Slide with a Guinness World Record!

The JOM! Experience Penang campaign is focused on attracting domestic travellers to Penang with value-for-money promotions, namely Best Hotel Deals, Best Attraction Deals, Best Tour Packages and Thank You Frontliners, all of which are available on the campaign's website – penangtraveldeals.com. These promotions offer visitors different experiences and substantial savings on accommodations, attractions, and tours. Additionally, the campaign also honours essential workers in Malaysia working at the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis with free passes and attractive deals on hotels, attractions, and weddings through its Thank You Frontliners campaign.

YB Yeoh Soon Hin, Penang State EXCO for Tourism, Arts, Culture and Heritage (PETACH) said, "After being confined to our homes for months, there's never a better time to start travelling again and explore the diversity of a nearby state known globally for its UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town, quirky street art, street food, 130-million-year-old virgin rainforest, and diverse natural landscapes of hills and beaches. The state also boasts attractions with world unsurpassed titles, branded collectively as 7 World Wonders of Penang, as well as a host of other hidden holiday gems located across Penang Island and Seberang Perai.

PETACH has also recently launched the COVID-19 safety accreditation programme to strengthen preventive measures undertaken by Penang's tourism industry players. The initiative is the first of its kind in Malaysia, intending to instill confidence in travellers visiting Penang.

With so many attractive discounts and deals under this campaign, we can skip the jet lag and travel locally. Penang is just a flight or a road trip away.

7 World Wonders of Penang, were also unveiled in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2020.

The JOM! Experience Penang campaign is part of the ongoing "Experience Penang 2020" campaign. With the tagline "The Diversity of Asia", EPY 2020 is focused on highlighting Penang's amazing diversity in culture, heritage, arts, food as well as its natural surroundings of lovely sandy beaches and breathtaking hills. The campaign also shines a spotlight on some of Penang Island and Seberang Perai's undiscovered and hidden holiday gems, showing there’s much more to Penang than just its well-known icons.
