Armenian Street, George Town

(4.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Feel the atmosphere of a time gone by while you admire the quaint buildings at Armenian Street. Stroll along the well-preserved and restored street named after the Armenian people who settled in the area in 1786. Being crafty traders, they introduced aspects of their lifestyle to the local community and made a lasting impression on the city of Penang. Enjoy the old architecture, street murals, and orthodox temples characteristic of the area. You can get a taste of Armenian culture in the many shops and restaurants, which fit in well with the quaint style of the rest of the street.

  • Armenian Street has a magical feel to it, and as you walk down it, you feel transported away to another place and time. We found many excuses to walk down it during our visit to Penang.  more »
  • It is the most important street of Georgetown and any hotel can provide a map with the murals to see along this road. Unfortunately some murals are poorly preserved and then some have lost their charm or you see shortly, we should exploit them more. Pity that this road is busy and is not pedestrianised.

  • Enjoyed visiting the little shops and admiring wall murals here. Best to walk or hire the LinkBike (or other bicycles for rent) to get around the area.  more »
