tour description

Enjoy a fun and interactive discovery walk of Georgetown's street art highlights. You will start with the probably most famous piece of art in Georgetown, Ernest Zacharevic's 'Kids on bicycle'. From there follow Lebuh Armenian and be amazed by the variety of street art to be found along the way. Prepare yourself for a scavenger hunt for 101 lost kittens in Georgetown. The project was created by Artists for Stray Animals in order to create more awareness and thus, to improve people's view towards stray animals. See for yourself how cats and humans can happily live together and how cats can help around the house ('I can catch rats'), and show your support for 'No animal discrimination'. Say hello to Marge Simpson, who stands next to the 'Cultural girls'. Continue to witness a 'Cultural dance' and why not learn some 'Hokkein' along the way. Finish with some 'Magic', then turn right at the 'Old man' onto Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, also known as Street of Harmony. Take the first one right again, onto Lebuh Ah Quee and find out about the names origin. Explore what the real Bruce Lee would never do, and again, don't forget to count the cats. Afterwards, take a pet dinosaur for a walk and go for a motorbike ride.
Now, it is time to swap your style of transportation and continue the tour now by Trishaw. Say hello to the man wearing the Malaysian flag and learn more about the making of Georgetown on Gat Lebuh Chulia. If you feel rested again, why not join a match o basketball, or just on a swing. Your next stop is with the children behind a bar window who want Bao on Gat Lebuh Armenian. Then, draw your attention back to the lost kittens, and see how many you can spot in this street. They come in all sorts of colours and shapes, and might even bring you fortune. Also, don't forget to take your selfie with 'Skippy', the projects mascot, who now lives happily at the Bon Ton Resort, Langkawi. As we say goodbye to the cats, see if you can spot where the old jail was on Lebuh Pantai, and the 'Ironsmith'. On Lorong Toh Aka you will find a 'Lady praying under a tree' and the birthplace of the first Malay novelist. From there, find evidence of the 1867 Penang Riots. Finish your tour at another one of Zacharevic's 3D art pieces and stretch out.
Afterwards, your driver will return you to your hotel.
