UNESCO World Heritage Site

George Town is a living testimony of the multi-cultural heritage and traditions of Asia, where diverse cultures and religion met and have coexisted in harmony for generations.

In 2008, George Town was recognised for its outstanding universal value by UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention. The heritage enclave, according to UNESCO, represents a remarkable example of the historic colonial towns on the Straits of Malacca.

The city reflects the coming together of cultural elements from the Malay Archipelago, India and China with those of Europe, to create architecture, culture and townscape unique only to George Town.
