Visit Penang 2017
BALLOON FIESTAS, GOOD FOOD AND HOME GROWN LITERARY FESTIVALS TO GRACE THE ‘PEARL OF THE ORIENT’
Kicking off for a 3rd consecutive year, Visit Penang 2017 is expected to light off with a bang this year with amazing celebrations, home grown art festivals and a cornucopia of food that offers almost endless diversity.
The theme of this year’s celebration “Where The Excitement Never Ends” will feature celebrations all year round beginning in January itself with acrobatic lion dances during the Chinese New Year, unbelievable body piercings during Thaipusam in February and intricate ketupat weavings for Hari Raya Aidifitri in June.
Penang is also the home of the increasingly popular “10 Days 3 Festivals” featuring the George Town Literary Festival, the In-between Arts Festival and the Penang Island Jazz Festival which attracts thousands of global travellers annually.
Don’t miss the opportunity to join the Penang Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2017, one of the state’s most anticipated events for the year.
These events and many more will grace the ‘Pearl of the Orient’ in 2017 “Where The Excitement Never Ends”.
