Bel Retiro Bungalow, Penang Hill
Penang Hill, Penang / Pulau Pinang
During the colonial days, there was a form of segregation among the races.
The most prestigious property was Bel Retiro, built in the 1800s as a resort for high govenment officials and visiting dignitaries.
It was the favourite retreat of the first Yang di-Pertuan Agung and Tunku Abdul Rahman whenever they visit Penang.
Building on the principle that proximity is next to greatness, the senior officers build their bungalows in proximity to Bel Retiro.
During colonial time, no non-whites were allowed residences above the Viaduct station.
Convalescent Bungalow, Penang Hill, Pulau Pinang
Located on a hillock called Hygiea Hill, Convalescent Bungalow is one of the oldest of the bungalows on Penang Hill, second perhaps only to Bel Retiro. The earliest structure was erected for the use of senior officers of the East India Company and members of the European community after Penang was elevated to the status of presidency in 1805.
