Penang had always been one of the places to go for many travelers for local or even foreign. Since the island got its status of UNESCO, tourism industry had since flourish over the years. When I heard about Double Tree Resort by Hilton Group is coming to Penang, that put a smile in me as the island now is starting to attract bigger hotel group coming into the island for operation.
It was until recently by attending an official launching for the announcement of Double Tree Resort by Hilton in Penang.
Both Crazy girls.
