Where the Excitement Never Ends 永不谢幕的激荡

Penang is much more than just exotic flavours that can make your taste buds dance. What governs Penang’s uniqueness is mainly the multi-racial communities with a myriad of flavours that have catapulted Penang into being one of the best food cities in the world. Prettily framing this, due to the multi-cultural factor, colourful and immensely memorable festivals happen all year around in Penang.

Penang’s appetite for drama and entertainment comes to life in spectacular festivals for all occasions, including religious, cultural and arts. Celebrations are held year-round, offering fantastic scenes such as acrobatic lion dances during Chinese New Year, the intricate weaving of ketupat (rice dumpling wrapped in palm leaves) during Hari Raya Aidilfitri and the unbelievable body piercings on show during Thaipusam.

Home-grown arts festivals are increasingly popular with global travellers such as the month-long George Town Festival and the continuous ‘10 Days 3 Festivals’ comprising George Town Literary Festival, In-between Arts Festival and Penang Island Jazz Festival.

Visit Penang, will be celebrated in Penang for the 3rd consecutive year. Kick-starting Visit Penang Year 2017 is the Penang Hot Air Balloon Fiesta held on the 4th and 5th February in conjunction with Chinese New Year where visitors are able to experience hovering above solid ground.

Another thing to watch out for throughout the year is the Last Friday, Saturday and Sunday or LFSS programme that happens each month in George Town. Here’s when cultural shows, music performances and interesting walkabout tours happen and most of them are free!

Hop-On The Island, Hop-Off The Mainland - LFSS.jpgNasi Kandar (84).jpg槟城不仅仅是拥有令人味蕾起舞的异国情调美食,构成槟城独特性主要元素来自多元种族社区和精彩鲜明的口味,使它被誉为全球美食城市之一。可是,恰如其分地,由于多元文化的融汇,也促成了绚丽缤纷,激动人心的节目庆典全年在槟城上演。

壮观的宗教、文化和艺术节日连绵不绝,全方位的特色戏剧和娱乐活动环绕着。全年举行的庆典,展现令人难忘的场景:比如农历新年期间的舞狮舞龙杂技表演,欢庆开斋节特制的ketupat(棕榈叶包裹的米团子),还有让观者惊心动魄的大宝森节“肉身穿刺”感恩还神仪式。
至于当地与全世界游客互动的艺术活动也日益火爆,如长达一个月的乔治市庆典,还有10天3个庆祝活动,其中包括乔治市文学节、In-between艺术节和槟岛爵士音乐节。

2017槟城旅游年已是连续第三年在槟城欢庆,而开启2017年槟城旅游年的重头戏是2月4日和5日举行的热气球嘉年华会结合农历新年,而游客们可体验盘旋悬空在地面之上。

另外,值得关注的是贯穿全年的活动:Last Friday, Saturday and Sunday或称为LFSS计划,这是乔治市每月举行的亮点活动。包含文化节目、音乐表演和有趣的徒步旅行活动,大部分都是免费参与!
