The Penang art scene is blooming and Penang street art is one of the island’s biggest tourist attractions. Penang street art tells the story of George Town, the city’s traditional crafts, heritage, old world professions and its people.

Stroll around George Town to look for murals and wire sculptures, or look for the inaugural five pop-up container art installations showcased at five different venues throughout the island and the mainland. This is a fun activity for the day.
