Short-term rentals offer tourists more options

I REFER to the Penang government’s announcement of its proposal to ban short-term rental homes or homestays in apartments, residential buildings and condominiums in the state, and the ensuing reaction.

In my opinion, the proposed ban is a knee-jerk reaction to complaints from some owners of the residential properties concerned, and does not address other key issues, including the fact that short-term stays are actually popular among families with children and who are travelling by car.
