'Contemporary Penang is no longer a pristine island but a modern metropolis...urban aesthetic and architecture which have been taken for granted for decades are now re-appreciated.
With growing international interest and the efforts of a local heritage movement, identity and traditions are being renewed.
In the 21st century, a new generation has come to appreciate what Penang has to offer. Substance has always been there and, with a little polish, Penang's heritage homes are beginning to glisten in what Peter Carey calls that almost perfect island .'
