Bukit Bintang, in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, is famous for its shopping, night life and good food.
Several years ago, one back lane after another started sporting a new look in the form of colourful murals.
It was spearheaded by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) as part of its urban renewal efforts, with the aim of bringing life to the back lanes.
Most of the paintings depict nature in its vibrant colours, allowing visitors a chance to discover Malaysia’s flora and fauna.
DBKL has been praised for initiating the project as it has helped draw more tourists to the area, especially pedestrians.
Many end up taking selfies and wefies as the murals are definitely Insta-worthy.
The project is ongoing as more back lanes are still being painted, including at Jalan Alor, Jalan Berangan, Jalan Changkat and Jalan Rembia in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle.
