The artwork is very nice depending on which one you are seeing and is good for some photos. Unlike Penang though, there are not as many and they are a bit more spread out. It's best to combine this while looking at the other attractions...More

Ernest Zacharevic's murals get all the press attention but there are others just as interesting. Unfortunately, it's getting weary under the constant sun and rain.

Art of OLDTOWN includes various murals on the roadside buildings. Pleasant enough but nothing to get excited about.
