    Interesting street
    Street art along here and other parts of GT is very interesting. Looks for crowds taking photos.Between Beach Street and Acheh Street was no cars when we went. Its also close to little India.

    Most popular street
    The street art first drew crowds to this small area and then every possible space was turned into a souvenir shop. Interesting cafeterias also appeared like the white glass cubicle Your Local Club on a heritage site next to the almost fading Girls on a bike drawing. The constant action on the narrow adjoining streets keeps people coming to pose with their chosen piece of art.

    Exciting!
    One of the most famous streets in George Town which can get very busy indeed by mid day so, if possible, go earlier. Armenian Street has, more or less everything from wonderful street art to a variety of places to eat and drink. Some of the architecture is interesting also so don’t forget to look up! Take your time…there’s many photo opportunities and wandering about is free! Highly recommended.

A narrow street within the city of George Town. Within city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s famous for its rich cultural offerings and street art.

This is an excellent part of old Georgetown - you need to visit esprit in the evening to appreciate it at its best. Recommended.

Armenian St is probably, in my view, the best of the streets in George Town. Cute shops and at the bottom of the street is a good food market

By far the best street for art, food and shopping in Penang. Top tip is to visit in the early in the morning - like 7:30am - we had all the street art for ourselves and beautiful dawn light.
