Penang is serious about restarting their tourism industry and are now offering island tours which start at, RM15 per person.
According to reports by The Sun packages range from RM15 to RM1,000, from a half-day to a three-night stay with tours starting from 9am until 6pm.
They’ve cited the Malaysian Chinese Tourism Association (Penang Chapter) Chairman Andy Chuah who said that there’s around 12 packages planned until October.
We are offering packages specially tailored to individuals, couples and families. If you drive from Kuala Lumpur to Penang, the cost is about RM100 per group for toll and fuel. But if you take our package, the cost is about RM60 per group. The money you save can be spent bingeing on street food here.Malaysian Chinese Tourism Association (Penang Chapter) Chairman Andy Chuah
He also said some of the packages include tours of the mainland, a change from the previous norm because tourism used to be island-centric.
Commenting on the pricing, Chuah said conventional travel packages are as competitive as online travel services.
Throughout these tours, he said, groups are required to practice preventive and disinfection measures.
