Most people think of George Town as the #1 place to go to in Asia for amazing collections of street art.

However, not many know about Ipoh. The once-booming city prospered on the back of mining fortunes but was quickly forgotten as demand for tin wained.

Is it possible that Ipoh – not George Town – is Malaysia’s king of street art?
