The Wesley Methodist Church in George Town, Penang, with the Sheraton Hotel rising behind.

Kay adds:

“George Town on Malaysia’s Penang Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and deservedly so. But outside the Old Town, where new development’s been largely halted, you can still see some interesting juxtapositions of old and new – like this one on Jalan Burma.”
