The map below shows the trail covered. Each mural site is numbered in sequence, with the route from one to the other plotted out. This helps you cover all the murals at the shortest time with as little turning back as possible.
The walking trail of Ernest Zacharevic murals starts with The Awaiting Trishaw Paddler . You can reach this spot by various means, including by taking the Free Rapid Penang CAT Shuttle Bus to Bus Stop No 7 on the route. From there, the mural is just in front of you. If you go in the morning part of the day, you will have the sun illuminating the mural (in the late afternoon it will be under shadow).
