Places to Find Street Wall Art Around the World
12 Oct 2017PLACESBY SweetEscape

Street art is fleeting and controversial. Some people say it is vandalism, while others say it’s a great art form free for all to see. For sure, it is a great backdrop for a photo shoot.

London

London has one of the biggest and best collections of street art in the world. One of the most famous street artists is Banksy, whose distinctive stencil artwork has regularly appeared in London for more than a decade and often to criticize the government. You can go on the hunt for unique pieces of street art around Shoreditch, Croydon, and Southbank. There is even a street art tour you can go on.

Melbourne

Continue your art journey in Melbourne at the free outdoor galleries in Hosier Lane. With the cobblestone and overflowing art cluster, you will want to take pictures all the way down the street. If you go out shopping just off Bourke Street Mall, look for Union Lane, an ever-changing montage of artworks that cover almost every inch.

New York

New York is another big city full of murals. Unlike Melbourne that has some dedicated streets for street art, New York’s street art are spread out because artists can get fined if caught. You can mostly find them in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan by renowned artists like LMNOPI, Joel Bergner, and Invader, who puts up pixelated tile compositions in cities around the world.

Singapore

Street art in Singapore tends to depict culture and traditions of the many backgrounds that exist there. You can see a mural by a local artist Yip Yew Chong in Tiong Bahru that is of an old school roadside hawker stall with patrons happily savouring their meal. Head on over to Little India and Jalan Besar to find bold and colourful paintings. More than just a tourist attraction, Chinatown blends the old and new with some nice murals; visit the Amoy Street Food Centre, Smith Street, Kreta Ayer Road and Sago Lane to view them.

Kids Friendly Places To Spend New Year’s Eve in Bali
14 Dec 2017IDEASBY SweetEscape

As parents sometimes we can ran out of ideas when it comes to holidays and special occasion. Especially closing into New Year’s Eve, our concerns will be, what can be a good place for us and the children to celebrate. If you so happen to be in Bali this New Year’s Eve, here are a few options to take your children to for the celebration.

BALI SAFARI AND MARINE PARK

This is not just like any other zoo in Indonesia. It has its own lodge for you and your children to stay. The unique part about this lodge is that it is located right near by the animals. So you and your children can experience a real safari feel. It is a fun place to be to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

CLUB MED BALI

This place might not be very wellknown by the locals, but this resort, which originated from France is a great place to stay with your children. Not only for the fact that you pay for the hotel rooms but inside the resort itself they have many different fun activities for both adult and children which is all included in the price room. And at night they have shows and events of celebration.

ALILA SEMINYAK

If you are feeling a little bit fancy to celebrate New Year’s Eve then maybe this Prohibition Party at Alila this year will be great. By locating a secret entrance to a dining den, this would be a great experience to have and most of all it is children friendly place. They will present you special performances and magician to entertain the whole family.

Aside from this list, since you are already in Bali, have yourself and the rest of the family go to one of the beaches in Bali. Every year they will launch beautiful fireworks and it is always a wonderful experience to have to close the year. We hope you and your family have a great celebration!
