We know Malaysians enjoy a good road trip, especially when travelling with friends and family members. Be it taking in the scenery or the luxury of stopping for a food hunt along the way, It is what makes the journey so much fun.

“But with all the challenges brought about by the pandemic, many will understandably want to stretch their Ringgit further. And through this initiative, we hope to offset guests’ travelling expenses a little so they’ll have more to spend on the things they want to see or do at their destinations.” said Suleiman Tunku Abdul Rahman, Director of Communications for Shangri-La Rasa Sayang and Shangri-La Golden Sands in Penang.
