The Minangkabaus from Sumatra founded Negeri Sembilan and it is no surprise that its capital city today, Seremban, is the centre of Minangkabau culture. However, rather than being practised today, wide-spread elements of the Minangkabau culture are now reserved for shows, exhibitions and museums. In a way, this is also reminder to locals of its heritage. Some of the places you can visit are the State Museum, State Mosque and Cultural Arts Centre.

Seremban is now a busy commercial district rapidly growing in size and infrastructure. Shopping malls, offices and housing areas are sprouting up like mushrooms, increasing Seremban’s size and structure. The people have become a wide mix of races including Chinese, Indians and Malays.
In terms of food, Seremban’s ‘Siew Pau’, a Chinese pastry that is filled with sweet roasted pork is extremely popular. Also its beef noodles, found in the market square, is simply delicious.
Visiting Seremban is easy with new roads and highways leading from Kuala Lumpur. A trip here will enable visitors to see how a city like Seremban balances both historical heritage and modernity in the contemporary world.
