Visit Penang - Dental Tourism Reimagined

3 mins read

Why Penang?

Penang is a vibrant State with its capital, George Town, having the rare distinction of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a true melting pot of cultures with its blend of Eastern and Western influences. Retaining many of the values adopted during its era of British rule, Penang bears a charm that is unique to itself.

"Malaysia is currently ranked among the world’s top health tourism destinations thanks to its affordable, high quality medical treatment, with over 60% of health tourists making Penang their preferred destination."

The huge interest in health tourism sparked the establishment of Penang Health Association in 2006, then later in 2015, The Penang Centre of Medical Tourism (PMED) was established to promote Penang’s health tourism. Health tourism in Malaysia is closely monitored by the Malaysian Ministry of Health and Ministry of Tourism to guarantee visiting patients first class treatment and care.

Aside from healthcare services and affordable treatment costs, medical tourists visiting Penang will find the environment perfect for rejuvenation and convalescence. Attractions like Penang Hill and Penang Botanic Gardens offer vigorous treks, walking trails and bracing fresh air.

Numerous resorts offering spas, reflexology, yoga and meditation, as well as vegetarian and organic restaurants, are scattered around the island, all of which cater to both locals and visitors interested in wellness. Penang's cultural rebirth is not going unnoticed, and it appeals to the well-travelled health tourists.
