Armenian Street, George Town
(4.4/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • 如有腳力可自行找,但坐人力車找就好方便。壁畫主要集中armenian street, 有少許在遠處,行比較遠。人力車35馬幣一小時,都是伯伯踏的,還做導遊,所以可以考慮給小費 
  • Stroll along this pretty street and check out the wall art. There's also a nice little batik museum. At the far end is the house where Sun Yat Sen plotted the Chinese revolution
