George Town is the undisputed #1 cultural capital of the world because of its authentic multiculturalism. The indigenous Malay, Chinese and Indians form what is known as a cultural triangle. It is a legacy of British colonialism in Malaya. However, this is true diversity and each culture adheres to their own cultural attributes and religion. This results in the world’s best cultural festivals such as Thaipusam, Chinese Spring Festival, Pai Ti Kong, Wesak Day and Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
