It's normal for us Local people but we still like to visit every few months, its simply because the innovative Malaccan tend to create new idea and new product after few months.

The best time to visit is after dinner when the weather is cooler and the place comes alive with the street full of small stalls selling local handicrafts and desserts/ delicacies at very reasonable prices which will delight anyone.

Jonker Street is basically a lively street packed with vendors and food stalls where you can spend and hour or so and without breaking the bank. Buy a souvenir, refresh and eat one of the local dishes and if you're lucky, you can experience the senior karaoke show down the street. Quite a memorable sight!

Some of the fondest memories we have of Melaka were of the times we spent here.

Unless this is your first excursion in a town devoted to the tourist dollar, you have been here, done that. The difference here being the name on the T-shirt. There are a few interesting shops (check out the big bakery/cookie) shop as you enter town, the Jewelry Museum, or a few of the boutiques. Otherwise, spend your time at the... More

Let history come to life again as you wander along the Portuguese inspired historical path.. Walking beneath a scorching sun amazement captivated my being as history is unfolded at every step. I could visibly feel sweat dripping down my forehead and chest as the sun blazed in all its might...
