Dear kayes. Not to brag but I was a part of the initial move when I was the state Planner for Penang state.It was almost 10 years ago.We had such hard times convincing the Unesco's rep but it was worthwile.The harder period is now maintaining the authenticity of both cities.I remember taking UNESCO's Dr Richard Englehart to Taiping to see the historic connection with Penang.Also present were Khoo Salmah and Taiping history association En Anuar.
