34 Warehouse a new Cafe located by the River Side behind the Sayang Sayang Young Hostel. Love the view by the River Side and like the simple traditinal old decoration design. The food is nice and reminded me a lot of old generation story.

A very nice and calm cruise down the river which gives a good overview of the main sites that Malacca has to offer. Takes 45 minutes. We did it on the last day before we left. Very relaxing. Highly recommended.
