Georgetown’s Best Street Art | Malaysia

The island of Penang in Malaysia has become tourist hotspot for those seeking great food and oodles of culture. In 2016, Lonely Planet and Forbes were among those recommending Penang as one of their must-see tourist destinations and its attraction is unmistakable. In particular, it was wandering the streets of Georgetown that left us feeling completely enamored with the city. We sipped refreshing drinks in a geeky cafe filled with comic book figurines and Lego then window shopped for quirky souvenirs – I’m now regretting not getting spendy in the treasure trove of quirky stores!

One of the best parts of exploring was finding little roads filled with art. While different artists have worked on the streets, their styles have a similarity that make it seem really cohesive. Many of the installations use also 3D which makes the pieces feel really special.

One of my favourites was ‘Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur’ – I thought it was the cutest idea!

I hope that this post of few words can show just a little of the character of Georgetown’s streets. Malaysia has so many neighbourhoods that are beautiful to walk around but this tops the list for me.

    I’ve been seeing this place on the blogsphere a lot recently and I do really think I need to see it myself. All the murals look so cool especially the last one! x
