Discovery Walk

The George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site’s old streets, historic buildings, distinctive architecture, and world-famous street art make the city of arts, culture and heritage an ideal place for a discovery walk.

During the 5km fun walk, not only will you get up close to the city’s key landmarks but also its famous street art so that you can learn to cherish and conserve George Town’s prized heritage.
