Port Short on the island of Penang

Dr. Martin Gerretsen finishes his fascinating Asia cruise in Malaysia. We catch up with him at the port of George Town on the island of Penang. Penang has the third-highest Human Development Index in Malaysia, after the federal territory of Kuala Lumpur and the state of Selangor. Its heterogeneous population is highly diverse in ethnicity, culture, language, and religion.
