December 26, 2015 Malacca, Malaysia


Old towns with contrasting colors, people hustling through long shopping streets and restaurants, travellers watching over the calm and scenic riverfront, sizzling street food, rickshaw drivers roaming around with their flower-covered pedicabs, and old-school signboards hanging around––these make up a quick day trip to Malacca.

We didn’t have anything planned for our third day in KL. I woke up late and insisted to go to Malacca for a short visit. I’ve seen the place via Google search but I didn’t look it up so well, not until that very day when we were supposed to go. We have no itinerary, no little notes on the must-sees. Thankfully, we were able to buy a Malacca street map–with a walking guide for short tours–at only 5MYR.

Malacca is remarkable for rich history and culture gained from the colonization of Portuguese, Dutch, and British. You’ll find it so evident when you stroll the quaint little streets, colonial houses, and old churches. The area with red-painted buildings is the small city's center. Every spot was picture-worthy! It’s fascinating everywhere you look; you'll surely find something of historical masterpiece. 

Believe it or not, we were only in Malacca for 1 short hour. We were on full tourist mode heeding to the ever-reliable and ultimate tour guide that was the Malacca street map. Though I suggest you don't do the same thing, I still feel glad that we were able to squeeze everything just as when we needed to.
