The Bungalows of Penang Hill


 Mike Gibby

Penang Hill has the distinction of probably being the first hill station established by the British in Asia, slightly preceding the better known Indian hill stations. Most visitors to the island ascend to the top, about 1,000 metres above sea level, stay about an hour and then return to the humidity below. This book is about the people who stayed, and still live, in the 52 bungalows that dot the upper reaches of the hill. Gibby introduces the readers to the history, personalities and architecture of the refuge from the maelstrom of city life below. New Soft back. First Edition. 222 pages with over 400 photographs, many of which have not been published before . For further details, please see the scanned contents page.  Weight: 1 kg. Post free within Malaysia
