Dying Heritage - Georgetown Penang, Malaysia

Although Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia has been declared as a UNESCO World Culture Heritage Site since July 2008, certainly, not all heritage sites are covered under this protection. This series presents the remaining pre-war heritage shophouses, which are not covered by the UNESCO World Heritage Site, before they torn down or refurnish. Unfortunately, foreigner investors have started to acquire this heritage shophouses and refurnish it for commercial purposes. The architecture and design of some of these shophouses has been altered and I believe, there will be more to undergo this unfortunate process in the near future.
