There’re plenty of them however you might need to spend times locating them. Be aware of the hot weather even there’re just scattering around that area, bring along umbrella!

We really enjoyed wandering along the small lanes in the old town of Ipoh to see those creative and beautiful street arts. It was an interesting experience. Definitely worth to go for a walk.

Had not expected much from Ipoh other than a stop on the way to Penang. How wrong we were and how delighted that we had booked two nights to explore the old town.

Since Penang has had such success drawing people in with their “street art” other Malaysian cities have followed suit. But as others say, Ipoh has let theirs deteriorate. Too bad. Would not bother to go on a specific tour but it is nice to notice...More

We took a journey to view the murals painted on the wall of old buildings with many themes such as heritage, culture, scenery and others. Easy to understand and enjoy. We saw public art in the best sense, created in public for the community to...More

Ipoh Mural Art Trail is a route containing various murals and you can pick up a map and leaflet about it at the Tourist Information Office. It's all very bland and tame stuff if you've seen the many streets in Europe which have the real...More
