Abstract

This paper draws attention to the ethnic impact of tourism on the plural society of Penang. It suggests that extant models on tourism development pay inadequate attention to the multiethnic character of the host community which may serve to determine the manner in which benefits from tourism are distributed. Using Penang as an example, it attempts to describe the process which gives rise to ethnic dominance in the industry, and suggests some measures which can be taken to sustain the attractive plural outlook of the island as a tourist at destination.
