As the capital of Central Java, Semarang offers a splendid multicultural harmony all over the place. Famous for its business district, it is indeed the perfect melting pot for Chinese, Indian, Arab, and European culture. This can be seen from old buildings that are well-preserved in some areas, like Lawang Sewu, Blenduk Church and Gedung Batu.
When in Semarang, make a stop by the Chinatown to taste its delicious Lumpia. For a more complete culinary experience, visit Pasar Semawis area in Gang Warung. The lined-up food stalls here will serve various kinds of local dishes with its signature taste that can’t be found in any other places.
