Penang Heritage City - a fitting title bestowed to this fair island. It is now part of UNESCO's World Heritage Cities Program.
I know that most of us associate Penang with the beaches, the iconic Penang Bridge and its glorious food.
However, the capital city, George Town, has the most number of pre-war buildings in all of South East Asia which are still intact. That is why, the island is known as Penang Heritage City.
The place is so rich with history. Since Francis Light drew out the plan of the city, it had born witness to the rise and fall of governments and ruling parties.
The city was coveted by many as a strategic and natural port. It was also the guardian to the northern entrance of the Straits of Malacca.
