This is a side street and you come upon it by accident or at least we did. The murals show all sorts of Malaysian life, traditional, modern and satire too. BUT the sad this is that they are deteriorating and not in good condition. It...More

The street has been appreciated by the entire family. You can also discover many other painting arts in the Ipoh streets but this street has a great select of them.

You will find art at various places around town, some good some not so good and some lost a little with the dilapidated walls but it is interesting and different and worth seeing,

I love cities with art walks. Ipoh has some wonderful large art murals and many that are not on the art walk. You can see the art scattered around the city. Get out and explore.

The arts can be found around the old town. Spend about an hour walking around the town finding the artwork and taking pictures.
