Penang Street Art

Strolling through Georgetown's streets became just a little more exciting in 2012 when Penang's municipal council hired London-trained Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic, to breathe new life into some of the atmospheric Chinese shop-houses around the inner city. An effort to spawn awareness of the streets' rich history, the project was a success, with Zacharevic turning certain areas into thriving Penang tourist attractions that also became much-talked-about local hotspots.


Zacharevic's artwork is spread out across Penang’s city centre, along roads like Muntri Street, Weld Quay, Lebuh Leith, Armenian Street, Ah Quee Street, and more.

Clan Jetties in Penang

The Clan Jetties, part of the Penang Heritage Trail, once comprised seven jetties before a fire claimed one. Billed as one of the last bastions of old Chinese settlements on the island, this waterfront society is home to houses on stilts of various Chinese clans.


Located straight down from Lebuh Chulia (beside the Kapitan Kling Mosque) at Pengkalan Weld (Weld Quay), these water villages are over a century old. Each jetty is named after a Chinese clan, with the Chew Jetty being the most tourist-friendly. It features the most stilt houses, the longest walkway, a temple that is worth stopping by, and plenty of places for those Kodak moments.

The Peranakans, also known as the Babas and Nyonyas, were a prominent community of acculturated Chinese unique to the Straits Settlements (Penang, Malacca, and Singapore). Also known as the Straits Chinese, they adopted selected ways of the local Malays and, later, the colonial British. This led to a unique blend of customs and lifestyle that has influenced and continues to shape Penang's cuisine and language today.
