Georgetown, a UNESCO heritage city

Its a city with a mix of old colonial and cultural buildings and shophouses with the old original design and structure which are mostly attached to the Chinese communities in the area; it is also a modern city with modern buildings and big shopping malls. It was a hot sunny day when we arrived Georgetown and having never been here before, we wanted to cover the heritage side of the city as much as we can as well as to savor the local delicacies that was always talked about on the travel sites.

We have not had lunch at this time and one of the hotel staff said that Sri Weld Hawkers center isn’t far away and not bad at all to try out. So we started walking out of The prestige Hotel where we are staying. We thought it was a nice walk and after seven minutes later, we reached the hawkers place. Truly, not bad at all as there’s a lot food varieties from each stall that was available there. We have even decided to go to the same place for breakfast the next morning before exploring further out. There was a long line on the front and we were wondering why there are so many people in line. It was the savory traditional ‘Nasi Lemak’ (fragrant rice, archives & Chili paste on a banana leaf which we did try and of course, it was delicious.
