We came to Georgetown at the hottest part of the day so we didn't stay for too long, however on our walk around Georgetown the street art is evident and great to see when you're strolling along. We walked a little way and came across several art works, you then find yourself wanting to walk all over the place to... More

This is definitely the icon of Penang. There are many beautiful street art located at different parts of the town. 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. There are... More

What on earth is all the fuss about! Our taxi driver showed us them on the way to other attractions and yeah there OK but old and faded, Penang must be getting desperate if they call this an attraction! Don't pay to do this you can get a taxi to do a drive by for free.. You would spend no... More

Although some of the murals can be difficult to find, I think that is half the fun. When you turn round a corner and see a beaufitful piece of art work on the wall makes the walking worth while. They are certainly worth the effort, but can get hot so maybe early in morning or early evening a better time.

No trip to Penang is complete without visiting the numerous murals scattered throughout Georgetown. Some of the murals are HUGE but so beautifully painted. A must see and do!

The street Arts are very nice and pretty well-maintained. Worth the trip. However, because they are quite scattered around the area, it is best to travel on bicycle rather than to walk under the hot sun. Can be tiring for young children.

Beautiful street art all across historical Georgetown by Ernest Zacharevic and other local artists. We were delighted to find the "Little Children on a Bicycle" mural. Didn't manage to find the Skippy cat mural though. Do bring a hat / umbrella / fan as it can get extremely hot!

If you are planning to come to this place one has to get up early to avoid the many locals and tourists and the heat of our Malaysia weather all together in order to snap your favorite post on this little side lane street art.

Loved it a lot ❤ One of the reason to come to Georgetown. Many pieces of street art all over the town, hidden and so not much, it's a challenge to find as many as possible.
