It is good that they have preserved the fort well just like the Alamo. Do they have people/guides who also dress up as in the colonial days giving a walking tour of the fort?

I was there three years ago and they do have costumed sentries 'on duty' at certain locations. Tourists can take pictures with them, and needless to say, we did snap a few shots. The fort is quite interesting, though it is a bit bare. Maybe the tourist promotion authorities should spruce up the place now that Penang is listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
