Penang Travel Guide

George Town is the capital of the island and state of Penang , off the west coast of peninsular Malaysia known for its mix of cultures and its delicious street hawker food. The city was founded in 1786 by the British as one of the three Straits Settlements along with Malacca and Singapore. Today its old core of well-preserved buildings provides an authentic view at this vibrant city with traditions that run deep. A mix of settlers from China, India, and beyond have created a mix of ethnic groups that each stay true to their cultures and religions. But perhaps most beloved for its street food , tourists fly in to George Town from across Asia to taste the classic hawker dishes.

Adorning the side wall of the National Registration Department in Sungai Ara, Penang, this mural named "Muhibbah" was completed in 2020. In an interview with The Star, Phang said the mural was commissioned by the owners of the building as they wanted a mural which reflects the diverse communities in the country and their cultures, which is the theme of the painting. Phang who lectures in art at a local college here, has painted about 50 murals – mostly in Penang – and hopes to do more in future. Thumb through the following photos to see the gorgeous mural up close and do follow Art of Vincent Phang ! 🤩 📍: Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) (Cawangan Bayan Baru), No.2A-1, Tingkat Kenari 6, Desa Ria, Sungai Ara
