Penang, the Pearl of the Orient is not only known for its beautiful beaches and amazing food, it has also attracted lots of tourists with its art scene — literature, performing arts and the famous street art around George Town.

Just when we thought murals can only be done on walls, the Penang International Container Art Festival came through with its very first edition this year, showcasing the masterpieces of Malaysian and international artists done on towering containers. How cool is that! 

While it isn’t ideal to be travelling overseas during the Covid-19 outbreak, this is a great chance for you to travel locally (since the Government’s Stimulus Package is providing rebates for local travellers) and support creatives while snapping pics to bless your Instagram feed.
