Penang is an island in Malaysia's north, not far from the Thailand border. George Town is the capital of the state of Penang in Malaysia (also spelt Georgetown). Penang’s mosaic of cultures, languages and religions can be clearly seen in the old heart of the city called Colonial George Town, and named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2007. A fascinating fusion of East and West, George Town's heritage is testimony to more than a century and a half of British rule fused with Malay, Chinese and Indian traditions. The shophouses are still both shops and homes.
