I was on my way to A'Famosa Resort for a 2D1N vacation!!!...Droping by the Malaysia historical town to snap some photos!....

When I was child, my mum always bring me along pass thru this small town on our way back to my mum's hometown. Specially bout this is I never take a step down on this and taking any photos before this....this is my 1st time....

Something about Malacca

Malacca, is one of the states in Malaysia. In the 15th century it was the largest port in South-East Asia, though its importance has long since declined. Its history is riveting and the town has fascinating examples of Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese and Islamic architecture throughout its rambling streets.

Melaka town is small and easy to negotiate on foot, bicycle or trishaw. The most interesting parts are near the river and along the original waterfront. Here, particularly around the Dutch built, town hall where you will find a number of churches and the Cultural Museum.

On the opposite river bank, in what has become, Chinatown there are more interesting architectural landmarks worth visiting. Boat trips down the river make it possible to view the lifestyles of the people of the area and see more historic architecture en-route.

Will update soon...
