The City of Georgetown, Penang, is known for its ancient, tropical ambiance and laid-back pace of living. Two-to-three-story wooden houses built during the western colonial era stand in exotic colors. While windows may be cracked and paints peeled off with time, age only adds pride to the antique houses. Where buildings are too old, they are torn down, and the old tiles, blurred glasses and oxidized wooden pieces are recycled by those enthusiasts who care to revive the ancient elegance.
