The project was a success with Zacharevic turning certain areas into thriving tourist destinations that also became the much-talked about object of attention among locals.

“This is a cool place to explore, make Sunday the day and enjoy a Pop-Up Market. Many things happening here. Cafe shop and Art Gallery are at the entrance, venture into the old Bus Depot and find a green space, more art and the humble beginnings of a "Local Functional Food Garden", that has just recently broke ground! A hip new vegan restaurant is next door.”

“The Made in Penang Interactive Museum really helps shake off pre-existing ideas of boring, outdated museums, instead offering visitors a fun, exciting way to view artwork with exhibits that have clever 3D imagery features. For example, a portrait of the Penang Snake Temple, with a large 3D snake slithering out from the framework. A museum where getting involved is truly part of the fun, pictures range from historical images such as battleships being blown up by cannons, to elevators with iconic horror movie characters inside. The trick is that artists have used different colours, textured contours and some props to create each unique photo. Open: 09:00–18:00 Address: No.3, Pengkalan Weld”
