GEORGE TOWN, Malaysia -- Perched on the former colonial hill station of Penang Hill, an abandoned and yet regal-looking hotel overlooks UNESCO-listed George Town, the main settlement on the Malaysian island of Penang. Many wonder why such a beautiful heritage building is being left to rot on an island where property prices are soaring. The popular view is that the hotel is haunted.
