quaint heritage neighbourhood well known for its majestic clan houses – Khoo Kongsi, Cheah Kongsi - and towering minarets – Masjid Kapitan Keling, Masjid Melayu Lebuh Acheh.
The recent addition of street art and
giant wire sculptures (Marking George Town) has added an extra dimension to
the neighbourhood. Hunting for Ernest Zacharevic’s now iconic scenes of local
life including Kids on Bicycle and Old Motorcycle has become a favourite pastime for
The new street art scene also features other artists like those that drew Skippy, a part of the 101 Lost Kittens Project.

Town. Every Sunday, the area around Beach Street is “Car Free Day” making it a
safe and easy way to see the city.
