Take a walk down this street and you will find all the beautiful street art which is great for photo taking. The brother and sister on the bicycle street art is the most popular street art and there might be a need to queue to take photo with them. Along the way, you can find souvenirs shops as well.

Armenian Street is a great first stop in Penang - it appears to have had the most attention and restoration compared to others, with lots of interesting buildings, temples and shops.

This street is famously known for its street art. Explore the area on foot and try the local hawker food It is best to start walking early to avoid crowds of tourists. This is a must visit street when visiting Georgetown

Walked through the little walkways of Armenian Street, quaint and lots of little trinkets for sale too! Best part - no touting! Recommend to go while you are in Penang.

Named after an Armenian family that once lived here this street is more famous for its art. You won't be disappointed by the art on the walls. Some of it is unfortunately fading so get there and take some colourful pictures while the colours are still vibrant. Banksy eat your heart out!

Lots of souvenir shops, cafes... The highlight is definitely the street art! We were delighted to find the "Little Children on a Bicycle" mural. Didn't manage to find the cat mural though. Do bring a hat or an umbrella as it can get extremely hot!

Well, with seeing the t-shirts all over the place, it is nice to see the original images in context. We saw this street in a rickshaw tour (my wife asked where the motor was!), which was just about the right pace and our driver / pilot showed us where to look.
