About Us


Formerly known as “First Enterprise”, the Golden First Travel tour operator was established in Penang, Malaysia in 1978. The company quickly gained its fame by offering convenient and affordable package holidays to various destinations, specializing in the then-new concept of all-inclusive inbound and outbound tour packages.

Eventually, the company progressively acquired well-established regional tour operators in Butterworth, Sungai Petani, Penang and Ipoh, giving the group a unique national presence.

Golden First Travel is now recognized for high standards of service and quality, thus enjoying loyal support of consumers and travel agents across Malaysia. A leader in its field, the company continues to expand its choice of products and services to meet the changing needs of today’s leisure traveler.
