(Pic and Tips) Penang Street Art Hunting [Mural & Steel Sculpture]

Penang, the little island with full of activities, fun, food and people, was never disappointing me everytime I go there.. Since si Sumandak was studying there, I always get the chance to go to Penang, my favourite spot after my hometown.. 

So, going there like I don't remember how many times already, I decided to do some FUN activities.. So, searching thru the Penang Tourism website, I was interested in this FREE yet SATISFYING activities.. Yeah, hunting the Street Art of Penang consist the Mural Painting and Steel Sculpture..

Yeah, and I decided that it'll be the whole day activities for me and si Sumandak, walking around Georgetown and hunting those Street Art.. So, we print the maps from Google which you can get here : https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&t=m&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=206983907087560792960.0004c3e782fdd713fd759

And here we go, our journey........



We start as early as 8.30 am (early??) and yeah, we had mark our way plan the night before.. so, the starting and ending point, was our hotel, as there is 1 steel sculpture just in front the hotel..


And yeah, you can just see the proof of our hunting tour from the pic down here.. A TOTAL OF 31 MURAL AND STEEL SCULPTURE.. Yup, you've read em, 31 of them scrambled around Georgetown, and we're hunting by FOOT!! :)..

And hurray, the last sculpture come with an auntie sitting there!! Yeay!!.. This last sculpture was taken at 11.40am and it was like 200 meters from our hotel..

Oh, if you want to know, we do have our resting point.. 1 times for breakfast and 2 times a simple break for resting.. Well, I'm very proud of si Sumandak for tagging along with me along this activities.. And I don't know we walk for how many kilometers that day.. 

So, if you're asking me that if it's adventurous or not, I must say yes.. Because...

1. The Sculpture was placed randomly, some at the busy road, some at the Market, so, it's up to your creativity of taking the shot.. And yeah, the sculpture tell the story of the place you walk on.. :)..

2. Some mural are just too popular that you might need to get in a lined for taking picture with it.. for example, when we reach the "Little Children on a Bicycle" mural, there was a photoshoot session there, and they took so much of our time..


3. There was so many another painting that randomly made near of these mural, or sculpture that I don't know why they're not included in the map, so we didn't take picture of em..

4. And there's a different hunting all of these with FOOT and Bicycle.. But if Aki and Sumandak can do it, why not U?? :)..

And so, if you're asking me, what my favourite of all?? I might say, the one that took my most attention was...


The Children in a Boat Mural (8 pictures merge together) for this is the mural that I think most of you will like it too.. It's not just about the mural.. It's about the environment and the people there making me LOVING this mural so much.. :)..


Aki : So anyone can feed me another free and interesting activities at Penang?? :)
