UK Based international lifestyle magazine, MONOCLE has featured Penang on their 52nd issue.  The 2-page spread focused largely on the conservation of architecture and  heritage buildings in Penang, while promoting property in the Heritage Core Zone. The article also mentioned heritage buildings that has been turned into hotels, services and restaurants : Muntri Mews, 23 Love Lane, the Blue Mansion, Teksen Restaurant and China House.

The web edition of the magazine features a 6 minute video of Penang with shorts interviews of local personalities including Chief Minister Y.A.B Lim Guan Eng. At the end of the video Y.A.B Lim Guan Eng remarked “Heritage is the window to our soul. It describes what we are. If we can connect to the past, then we can connect to the future”
