GEORGE TOWN: The various buildings and artefacts – even a tree – on a 3km trail of the Unesco Heritage Site in Penang came “alive” for the blind during their audio descriptive walk.

Touted to be the country’s first of its kind, guides from the George Town World Heritage Inc (GTWHI), St George’s Church and Sun Yat Sen Museum have been trained to lead the participants on the trail, covering many of the city’s major attractions.
