George Town, Malacca and Preah Vihear celebrate anniversary of inscription

No Comments

Cambodia is celebrating with particular pride, after all the ill-will the listing has brought about against neighbouring Thailand. In Malaysia, worries about George Town (and therefore Malacca) will lose its heritage status are eased as an agreement has come with some developers to limit the height of their proposed constructions.
