Georgetown, Penang

Named after King George III of Britain, Georgetown is the capital of the state of Penang, Malaysia. It is located on the north-east corner of Penang Island. Fortunately, George Town still retains many of its colonial-era shophouses and is considered an architectural gem in the region. The inner city of Georgetown is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
