Full description
Start your journey in the historical enclave of Little India, where migrants from the sub-continent labored to build George Town brick by brick. Explore the points of history that lead to the founding of the city as well as its modern socio-political paradigm. Try different dishes and snacks that have traveled from other parts of the world to find a home in Little India, just like the people who make them.

Follow the passage of time as it winds down the streets and walkways, and see how George Town slowly took shape. Whether you choose a private or small group hop, you can interact with your host, ask questions and find out more about things that pique your curiosity.

You'll enjoy food from various communities, in parts of George Town that grew more recently. From Chinese Teochew dishes that retain a strong sense of identity to new recipes that could only have been developed in Malaysia, you'll learn about the various cultures that make up the fabric of the city and how their food has become a part of who we are.
