Penang Lang’s love for Penang is too deep!

KUALA LUMPUR, 1st August 2022 — Besides their love for good food, Penang Lang (Penang people in Hokkien)’s love for Penang is too deep, observes Traveloka. 

Based on internal data of the travel superapp, it observes that Penangites are more loyal to their hometown compared to users from other states in Malaysia. 

“Penangites would always consider Penang first when it comes to planning a staycation,” said Angelica Chan, Country Manager, Traveloka Malaysia. 

She noted that staycation-related searches from Penangites are usually concentrated around the Georgetown, Batu Feringgi and Bayan Lepas areas. 

Apart from that, Penangites are twice as likely to stay in hotels compared to homestays or villas, and over 50 percent of the users are likely to search for food-related suggestions and deals on the platform. 

In acknowledging Penang folks for their outstanding loyalty to the island, Traveloka seeks to create better value for die-hard Penang fans, as well as help them rediscover the hidden beauty of the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, through the lenses of a Penang Lang. 

As such, Traveloka users can expect to enjoy up to 30 percent off hotels, flights and attractions. On top of that, users who apply the coupon code WAAIPENANG when they make their hotel bookings between August 8 and September 30, will receive RM50 off, with no minimum spend needed. Book now on
