What you'll do

We will meet at Ipoh Tourist Information Centre where the largest mural art, the significant landmark of the Ipoh Old Town White Coffee, "the old man with the coffee cup" is at to start off. First, we will view a 10 minute show of the mural art spots exclusively for you in the centre. From there, I will provide a map of the old town street art and an empty plotting map for us to plot our journey, treasure-hunting style. I will guide you to all 9 locations of the murals painted by the well known street artist, Ernest Zacharevich around old town. There are also some street arts done by our local artist which shows more abstract and traditional values and I will explain each one of them. We will spend about 1 hour going through all 9 murals in old town and come back to the starting point to savour the famous Old Town White Coffee and have a chitchat before parting ways .
Other things to note
You must wear comfortable shoes to walk in the streets. The weather will be unpredictable so be prepared with a hat and keep an umbrella handy.

Hello! I'm Johanna. I'm born and bred in Ipoh and the landmarks around the city have been my playground since I was a child. Knowing these places by heart, its delightful to see these buildings painted with the murals significant to Ipoh's history and I am lucky enough to sight the painting process to know what its all about. Having worked for the tourism department, it is my calling to share these wonderful art hidden within the alleys and streets of Ipoh to our wandering guests.

Where you'll be

The murals will be scattered for us to find in the alleys of Ipoh Old Town and there is a street dedicated to mural arts which will be at the border of Ipoh Old Town and Ipoh New Town called Jalan Masjid. I will also guide you to the famous Concubine Lane, a tourist landmark where we will find a few more distinctive murals.

We had a wonderful afternoon with Johanna. She was very knowledgeable about the street art of Ipoh and was also great company. We saw a wide range of art by both international and local artists. We really enjoyed the experience and highly recommend it.
