Is this UNESCO heritage tittle for sale?

If all places are to be called heritage sites, its looses it meaning.

I have been to both places. I loved it, especially Goerge Town.

I am not a big fan of my country and especially my hometown.
BUT IF THAT TINY FORT in Goerge town is a UNESCO heritage site, the FORT in my town should also be given the status. That fort is so tiny and its made of bricks. We have a LIMESTONE fort built by the Spaniards and its much larger. And its a place of worship with a living culture that has been preserved for centuries.

Melaka is charming, but some travellers may not like it as much as I did. Uhm, MACAU is so much better! You go there to see a tiny RED church, WHICH IS NOT THE ORIGINAL COLOR! I feel guilty coz I did love it! I mean I never praised our churches back home. That little red church is just a tiny chapel in some "nobody cares" town in some impoverished city in my country.

I loved both places, but don't expect too much, especially if you don't the luxury time.
