    Exciting!
    One of the most famous streets in George Town which can get very busy indeed by mid day so, if possible, go earlier. Armenian Street has, more or less everything from wonderful street art to a variety of places to eat and drink. Some of the architecture is interesting also so don’t forget to look up! Take your time…there’s many photo opportunities and wandering about is free! Highly recommended.

    Buyers Beware
    The area itself was nice enough if you happen to be nearby but i wouldn’t go out of my way to go as it is just about 3 blocks long and my hotel was a 6 minute walk. Small gift shops with drink and snack shops interspersed. One store I would steer clear of is S’mode Collections. They sell dresses that are priced 4x (139 MYR) the going rate (33-39 MYR ) in Malaysia for the same or similar style and the shop owners/operators will tell you lies about not selling at inflated tourist prices and being the designer of the merchandise. Untrue.

    Tourist destination
    This narrow street is somehow the most touristy part of George Town. Lebuh Armenia itself is not really impressive; it is the surrounding Chinese clan temples that makes the street stand out. It is now a major tourist attraction with many souvenir shops and rickshaw drivers touting for rides.

Worth a trek around this area. Street paintings are good. You have to keep an eye out looking for them but there are plenty. Not all are in plain sight.

I have to admit, I expected more from this street. It has the requisite wall and street art, but not awe-inspiring. There are also some interesting old buildings and temples, interspersed with shops, but the street itself is relatively short. When you visit, take your time to soak up what you can, coz there really ain't that much.

A narrow street within the city of George Town. Within city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s famous for its rich cultural offerings and street art.

This is an excellent part of old Georgetown - you need to visit esprit in the evening to appreciate it at its best. Recommended.
