"Malacca Stopover" Melaka by mizzzthanggg

Melaka Travel Guide: 1,836 reviews and 4,837 photos

spot the mizzzie

we made a short stopover to have lunch in malacca on our way back from pulau tioman. this is the jonker street area in malacca, where they retain the original (though brightened up) facades of shophouses from way back then. more photos in my malacca travelogue.

as this was just a rest stop to take a rickshaw ride to jonkers street for lunch, all photos here show only the section of town with chinese influences from the 'baba nonya' ethnic group. malacca also has very strong portugese and dutch colonial influences in architecture in other parts not evident in my pages.
