PENANG : MEDICAL TOURISM - 2009 NO. 2 MUST VISIT PLACE  , RANK BY NEW YORK TIMES

NY Times readers choose Penang as No.2 must-visit destination for 2009

A fascinating world of gourmet cuisine, exciting shopping venues and unique places of attraction are all within easy access for patients seeking pleasant diversions while recuperating. There are more than 10 private general hospitals and medical centres, an oncology hospital with facilities for radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and at least three nursing schools in Penang.

“As reported in The Star, January 18, 2009 by Christina Chin”

GEORGE TOWN: Readers of The New York Times have chosen Penang as the second best destination among “44 Places To Go in 2009”.

In top spot in the recommendations found on the paper’s website (http://www.nytimes.com) was Beirut.

The only other South-East Asian destination in the ranking is Phuket, which is in 15th place.

Other places include Washington (fourth), Rome (fifth) and Metz in France (sixth). The newspaper ranked Penang in the 22nd spot while Phuket was placed 12th.

Besides the second spot in the overall readers’ ranking, Penang is also in the top 12 places in the frugal and food categories (both readers’ and the paper’s recommendations).

The New York Times said adventurous foodies are now turning to Penang, the culinary capital of Malaysia, where they are eating their way through one of South-East Asia’s liveliest street-food scenes.

It said there are city-run hawker stands everywhere and even refined dishes like char koay teow rarely cost more than US$2 (about RM7.20)

State Tourism Development, Culture, Arts and Heritage committee chairman Danny Law Heng Kiang said Penang was chosen by the readers because of its good food.

“The ranking is a boost for the state as a tourist destination.

“Penang food is so famous that I know of Singaporeans who fly here just to eat,” he said.

Medical Tourism – Heal & Holiday in Penang
A regional medical tourism hub in South East Asia, Penang offers great choices in contemporary medicine as well as traditional therapies and spa treatments.

It is also the preferred destination for those seeking affordable cosmetic and elective surgery. As a ‘heal and holiday’ destination, medical tourists in Penang could undergo surgical treatment in state-of-the-art facilities, and enjoy peaceful recuperation in complete anonymity in world-class resorts and health spas.

Most hospitals here are fully equipped to deal with the full range of medical conditions ranging from life-threatening illness and injury to chronic medical disorders and maintaining personal fitness.

For enquiries regarding hospital procedures and medical expenses, please contact the respective hospital’s public relations department.
