Penang Island just off Peninsula Malaysia and south of Thailand is a tropical paradise. The building where this was taken has recently been demolished after four decade and is being replaced with another more modern hotel. This scene is on the north-western corner of Penang Island. This area has warm stable temperatures and the swimming here is safe. Also this place has some of the best seafood in the world and spicy crab dishes are a local specialty. What more does anyone need?
Georgetown, just a few kilometres east of here is a vibrant city. Penang is one of the largest computer assembly centres in the world including Dell but this is mainly the other side of the bridge, but still Penang state.

Serait-ce le paradis sur terre, je ne suis pas loin de le penser en regardant cette magnifique prise de vue qui donne une envie soudaine de tout quitter pour rejoindre cet endroit paradisiaque.
Très belle composition.

It's good to see some old shot of Penang and you are right, there's alot of changing, happened in the last decade.
Well, I couldn't recognise this place but I could see the image is still in good condition. And unfortunately, the tree standing in the middle of the picutre blocked the view of the pool.

I like your composition with the jewel of a pool hidden in the trees leading out to the beach and the sea. I think a touch more saturation brings out the clouds in the sky

nice picture, the waters seem to be in hiding, it would have been nice to see more of the sea, but well done
