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.
