The Penang state government together with the Association of Tourism Attractions Penang (ATAP) have taken a pro-active step to launch the Cuti Cuti Penang where it is aimed at energizing the tourism industry here in Penang amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
The Cuti Cuti Penang campaign entails a special “Penang-lang 50% off admission tickets” to more than 20 attractions and special offers at retail and restaurants around the state.
“All Penangites will get 50 percent off on ticket prices at participating attractions during this campaign period,” says Ch’ng Huck Theng, Chairman of ATAP at a joint press conference with state tourism exco Yeoh Soon Hin today.
This campaign will run from March 15 until May 15.
Yeoh said the government wants to encourage Penangites to travel in Penang, experience Penang and understand more about local attractions so that they are able to share their experiences with their friends and family outside of Penang.
“We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that they dont have to go far with Penang’s plentiful attractions,” says Yeoh.
Penangites only need to show their MyKad with the Penang state code of 07, 34 or 35 or with a Penang address to be eligible for the discount.
Participating attractions include The Top Penang, Tech Dome Penang, Dark Mansion 3D Glow In The Dark Museum, Penang Hop On Hop Off, Penang Bird Park, Entopia by Penang Butterfly Farm, Tropical Spice Garden, Teddyville Museum, Audi Dream Farm, The Habitat Penang Hill, Monkeycup Penang Hill, The Owl Museum Penang Hill and The Camera Museum Penang Hill.
Participating retailers and restaurants are Ghee Hiang, Cheong Kim Chuan Local Products, Harrison Signature Cocoa Boutique, Travis Hegel, Craft Batik and David Brown’s Restaurant and Tea Terrace.
