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!

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!

Celebrating the year of the Rooster 春风和煕迎鸡年

A celebration truly melts the heart each time when it is served with deliciously prepared food. With the Lunar New Year just around the corner, meal times during the season of celebration are crucial to foster, build and reconcile relationships. Maple Palace truly represents the essence of traditional and artisanal cuisine that brings the hearts together.

One such dish that fosters an ambiance of benevolence is the Fish Steamboat, a warm and hearty meal that could be shared around meaningful conversations. Enjoy the freshly prepared seafood and other sides alongside a delicate and delectable stock.

Combination Platter remain as the family favourite with its selection of intricate tapas-like finger food suitable even for the young and old. Exquisitely displayed to attract even the most finicky of fans, this delicacy feeds the eyes as much as the taste for good food.


What stands out for Maple Palace is its knack for what truly attracts its customers. Its efforts in preparing some of the most sophisticated dishes have brought customers back to its restaurant time and time again.

Another favourite such as the Home Made Classic Seafood in Casserole has been in the menu of the Asian cuisine for centuries and has been refined for over centuries by local and regional settlers.

Enjoy the season of celebrations in the year of the Rooster!
