Penang during the year-end holiday season is always packed with visitors here for the excitement and its activities. As proven that many outstation and overseas tourists come to visit Penang during this time, most of the hotels are fully booked for the holiday season which in turn is a tremendous encouragement for tourism in Penang.
In addition, Penang has included Star Cruises as a new attraction and product to tourism in Penang. This 31st December 2010, SuperStar Libra would make Penang her home port at Swettenham Pier, Penang. For her 2011 cruise season in Penang, Superstar Libra will be offering daily one night cruise to the Straits of Malacca beginning 20th February, and will be offering holiday makers a 4D3N alternative mode of exploring Phuket and Krabi which in turn we hope that more tourists will come into Penang for this luxurious mode of multi-destination travel.
Since George Town has been ignited as the UNESCO World Heritage City, Penang has become increasingly famous as a travel destination. As lately, many television stations and television programmes have been keen to film their movies in Penang and also to produce travel documentaries of Penang.
