  • Beautiful street. Lots of old buildings and colourful shops. Street art here and there to admire too.  more »
  • Nice street for tourist. One stop for what we need to visit n buy. Street art is a must visit in penang  more »
  • It is one of the central streets and full of locals and street art to discover. The atmosphere, day and night is very interesting. Jetty Food Court is initially a good place to discover local food, although there are other more sophisticated and modern options in the area.
