Rich culture and traditions give rise to lingering scents of irresistible food such as Assam Laksa, Prawn Mee, Char Kuay Teow, and Pasembur from all corners of Malaysia, whilst the island’s heritage is proudly preserved without resisting the flood of modernity as seen on the streets of Georgetown. What do you need for your pilgrimage to this food mecca? Just comfortable shoes and a large pack of indigestion relief.
