“Making strolling through Georgetown’s streets just a little bit more exciting, 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. An effort to spawn awareness of the rich history of the streets, the project was a success with Zacharevic turning certain areas into thriving tourist destinations that also became the much-talked about object of attention among locals. His artwork is spread out across Penang’s city centre, along roads like Muntri Street, Weld Quay, Lebuh Leith, Armenian Street, Ah Quee Street and more. Location: around Georgetown (namely Jalan Penang, Muntri Street, Weld Quay, Lebuh Leith, Armenian Street, Ah Quee Street and more)”

Point of Interest
“Getting the complete history of Penang and its nearby places is very hard as most of the Japanese and British records are destroyed due to a bombing at World War II. But still, you will get some information about the history of the place from the State Museum. There are a lot of state as well as national treasures placed here. You will be able to know about the Penang Riots of 1867, which is one of the major historical events of the place.”
