If you are in #malaysia and happens to be in #penang , one of the must go would be the #mural or street art.
Penang is a state in Malaysia, and the capital is George Town, which is being listed under the UNESCO world heritage site in 2008 as it is a living museum – the #culture (intangible) in the existing buildings (tangible). Means people can be living in the manner of a century ago where the existing buildings are all originals.
Penang Murals begins with the #art challenges, which are started to illustrations to reflect the character, multiculturalism and diversity of the inhabitants of George Town.
In Penang, casual walking is a good scenery, fascinating trails, temples and temples with carved beams, and a far-reaching surname bridge. In fact, it is not recommended to go to Zhouqiao. The commercial atmosphere is very strong, things are expensive, and a bend is made. The bowl of ice will drop directly from MYR 18 to RM 4! The surname Chen Qiao is very tasteful~ The stack road is beautiful, but unfortunately I dare not go too far, go back to the mural street, ready to start shopping in the hot sun, while drinking coffee drinks ~ beautiful! !
When the sun comes out, Penang's mottled walls release rich colors. It is recommended to visit this place by foot. It is freer and more casual than riding a bicycle or riding a tricycle. The most joy is to go to a corner of the street and suddenly find a famous mural. The surprise is like turning out the candy from the closet. Although it takes a little effort, it is more fun to discover than to take a photo. A pot of flowers and a wall is a beautiful memory worthy of processing. But if you want to take all the murals in Penang, then it is almost impossible! Because there are too many new and old corners, you have to bring a parasol, and drink iced drinks all the way. Tips: It takes more than 3 hours to fly from Hong Kong to Penang. The visa can be Evisa, which you can get in advance. I can do it in one day, but there is a risk of refusal. I was given a Malaysian visa for the first time in my life.
In 2012, Penang’s municipal council hired London-trained Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic and charged him with breathing new life into some of the atmospheric Chinese shop-houses around the inner city. There you can rent a bicycle to ride along roads like Muntri Street, Weld Quay, Lebuh Leith, Armenian Street, Ah Quee Street, explore the attractive works of Zacharevic and take photos.
