In 2022 I visited Penang. Due to the coronavirus the city was still effectively out of bounds to most foreigners. Having visited the city within the last five years I missed the buzz that tourism brought. Walking the streets of George Town I sensed a place that was rediscovering an old way of living before modern tourism had taken over. The Penang street art was full of creative murals; it may have lost an audience but it still gave the city its own authenticity. Visit the Penang Street Art Photos page.
