My First Overseas Travel Experience at 20

Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA) in collaboration with Tourism Malaysia Japan organized a study tour for Japanese students to experience travelling abroad for the first time. A special study tour to Penang was thus organized. There were over 1,000 applications but only 8 applicants were selected to participate in the study tour. SENTRAL College Penang is privileged and honored to host these 8 students from different universities.

The students experienced a real classroom environment by joining our Diploma in Tourism Management class, were briefed on the history of Penang, introduced to the Peranakan culture, savored Peranakan delicacies and went on heritage walking tour.

It was a fun and interesting cultural exchange experience for the Japanese students. The students thoroughly enjoyed their time with us. We wish them well in their future endeavors and welcome them to visit us again in the future. Arigatogozamashita!
