    George Town: Following the Street Art Trail

    George Town on the Malay island of Penang has traditionally drawn tourist for its Chinese mansions, Hokkien shrines, Indian market, and colonial quarters. That was what Penang was until recently. Since the Mirrors George Town art festival, the city is turning into an open air street art gallery.

    What is considered of damage of private property elsewhere is becoming a treasure hunt for visitors to George Town and inspires local business to commission pieces on their walls to attract them. While the orginal pieces slowly fade out and plaster crumbles, new paintings pop up elsewhere.

    Since I had to kill some time anyways, I followed George Town's street art trial. But I didn't find a real Banksy even though my pocket counter recorded 45,000 steps.

    Yet, there was plenty of street art that I want to share with you. Try this walk, Penang is just a two hour flight from Bangkok.
