Hotel Check-in Requirements

By booking this DreamTrip I understand that the hotel may request a credit card upon check-in. The hotel may request the credit card in order to: a) place a monetary hold of US$50-200; or b) hold for incidental, security or other charges. By booking, I acknowledge having received notice of this potential charge and accept that Rovia™ recommends a credit card rather than a debit or bank card be used in the event the hotel requests the card. I understand that any such request made by the hotel is outside of the control of WorldVentures™ and Rovia and is strictly a hotel policy. Should I have questions concerning the hotel’s policy, I accept responsibility for contacting the hotel independent of Rovia or WorldVentures.
  • Destination
    Penang, known as “The Pearl of the Orient,” is located on the northwest coast of Malaysia and is spread between a mainland and Penang Island. It boasts world-heritage architecture, sandy beaches, lush rainforests, colonial-era churches and ancient temples. Add to this an abundance of dining options, and Penang is among the most popular travel destinations in Malaysia.

    The region’s cuisine is unique and varied, thanks to a mix of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Peranakan cultures. Food is available on nearly every street corner — not just confined to restaurants and cafes — and is cooked in small batches ready to eat on the spot. Try assam laksa, a spicy noodle soup that combines Chinese and Malay cuisine, or sambal udang, a well-known Peranakan dish of prawns in chili.
  • Platinum Inclusions
    On top of other exciting excursions, Platinum Members will be treated to an exclusive, half-day tour on Day 4 (9 a.m. – 1 p.m.). Start with a batik-painting activity and keep your masterpiece as a souvenir — you may notice that batik is popular throughout Asia and can be seen on many textile products, from skirts to tablecloths. Then, transfer to Tropical Fruit Farm for a tour and to taste local, seasonal fruit.

    Life is great when you’re a Platinum Member!
