It is the heart of SEMARANG. I used to play a lot here. I can find a lot of street food and good restaurants as well. Night trip is beautiful. There are bicycles that can be rent.

Simpang Lima is a big square in Semarang City Center. All surrounded by restaurants and shopping center. Perfect for a walk. Good also for family with kids. Very nice in the evening because you can see the typical Lighting Tuk Tuk .
