  • While there are occasional gems, much of the street art is faded and poorly-maintained. The quality is not as good as in other places in Malaysia. Overrated.

  • The art was good actually but it seem like lack of maintenance from the authorities and not very clean.
  • It's like a 3D museum in the street..The environment, equipments and paintings would remind you your childhood..There is also food stalls around the place to relieve your hunger..Children will definitely get attracted to the colourful lights and cartoon dolls and pictures...Overall a good place to go for a stroll during the evening with family and friends 😀
