Instagram This #2: Street Art in Jalan Alor, KL

Jalan Alor is famous as a street hood haven in Malaysia. Did you know that you can also find some really cool street art here too?

For our second post of this Instagram This series, we bring you to Jalan Alor to explore the colorful street art in the area. Lots of great photo opportunities here, so go on and be a tourist in your own city!


We started off our street art walk from Ramada KLCC. You can find this giant mural on the wall adjacent to the hotel.



Most of the buildings here are painted in varying colours of the rainbow.  We like this section with a cool installation of floating clouds.

The buildings are painted with murals of trees and a stream (apparently there was a stream running here many many years ago)


More colourful buildings and birds. Look for "Graffiti alley" on google maps.

And butterflies..


Bubble-blowing boy (or is he blowing leaves?)



Some history on the "Lost Stream of Jalan Alor"

Super pretty looking flat! Dragonflies flying in the sky... 


Hello kitty!


Bunnies painted on doors


This was one of my favourite streets... with this striking yellow background and cats

And this beautiful colorful mural of ladybugs and macaw

You can also get a nice view of KL Tower from here



See the clever tie-in of snails to the exhaust pipes.




Lovebirds

  1. Nice. I guess if you can't find a jungle in your concrete jungle, a painted one will do. LOL!!!
