Heritage Houses Of Penang
‘Contemporary Penang is no longer a pristine island but a modern metropolis…urban aesthetic and architecture which have been taken for granted for decades are now re-appreciated.
With growing international interest and the efforts of a local heritage movement, identity and traditions are being renewed.
