While Penang has long been well-known for street art, Ipoh also has its fair share of murals. Interesting paintings depicting daily life of Ipoh residents are available in the old town. Searching for artworks while exploring the former mining city is an enjoyable experience.

Beautiful murals, but a lot of them are faded. It is a shame especially for me since it is a big draw seeing the local art work that tells a story.
Reminded me a lot of Penang.
I wish they would just touch them up a tad.
I would recommend!

Interesting place, sorry it is run down and not well maintained. This can be a good tourist hangout if it is maintained and developed

It was fun to walk around and see the history and walk down concubine lane. It was busy but well worth the time

While there are occasional gems, much of the street art is faded and poorly-maintained. The quality is not as good as in other places in Malaysia. Overrated.

Managed to get some late night dining and food shopping around Market Lane and Concubine Lane, after walkabout from Padang and Arlene House. Although traditional coffee shops were shut after 9pm, we found some new F&B cafes and biscuit confectionary shops still open in the area. Plan B was quiet and dark, so we walked further down the road admiring mural artwork and bought local biscuits like Kuih Kapek, Bangkek and Menglembu groundnuts from Lim's Delights - friendly staff offering tips for late night dining nearby.

Walked through Concubine Lane and found several open air restaurants with roadside tables near the Hakka Tin Mine museum. They were quite busy, so we walked back to Market Lane and decided to try DUAL fusion Asian-Western cuisine offered by new cafe located in a beautifully renovated corner shophouse. The interiors are like works of art with traditional peranakan windows and doors, rustic walls and staircases - very spacious lively night cafe with young people meeting up on Saturday night.

The murals around the town are worth appreciating and a must visit. The themes and their locales both are great.

We took a walk around town in the mid afternoon looking for the street art. It was quiet and we took really nice photos. Some paintings were faded but overall, they were really nice.
