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.

  • Many shops and stalls. Good place to spend the night. lots of food stalls. The buildings are historical. Watch out for bicycles. Many people rent them and use the street to riding the bike.

  • It's almost like Jonker St. in Malacca but busier cause they allowed the vehicles to pass through so it's a bit dangerous to walk about too. Not many significant souvenirs to be found but still okay.....  more
