Georgetown’s Heritage Buildings Shouldn’t Be Left as Empty Shells

Georgetown’s Heritage Buildings Shouldn’t Be Left as Empty Shells

If asked to picture Georgetown, many of us would picture a bustling city filled with tourists and locals alike, milling about historic pre-war buildings housing businesses that have been there for decades, interspersed with newer, modern cafes and restaurants. But despite being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is no stranger to the loss of heritage sites, especially those that are situated just beyond the UNESCO boundaries, with the most recent being the demolition of a pre-war bungalow on Clove Hall Road. We speak to Khoo Salma Nasution, Vice-President of Penang Heritage Trust, about the state of heritage preservation in Georgetown.
