Penang Malaysia is located at the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It has two parts: Penang Island where the capital city, George Town, is located, and Seberang Perai on the Malay Peninsula. Considered to be the second smallest state in terms of land mass, Penang however, is celebrated for its rich culture, history, and food. The George Town, in particular, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has made Penang a thriving tourist destination.
YMCA of Penang hosted their first group on July 28, 2014 and has since then welcomed different groups who are eager to participate in Alternative Tourism programs. The rich culture and the vibrant artistry has proven to be attractive to different groups. Moreover, Penang is also overflowing with delicacies that are sure to satisfy gastronomic experience of the participants. Yet more than these, the deep level of interaction and relationship that YMCA of Penang will forge with the participants and the community is the definite deal sealer in learning and enjoying alternative tourism in Penang.
