    It is another bazaar that will happens on only Friday Saturday and Sunday. If you are going there first time, you will probably find it interesting and unique. Most of the stalls are selling the same items.

    The Museum is a very tastefully furnished family home. The furniture and decoration is well preserved, harmonious and not too showy. The museum leaflet in French is complete and interesting. Our children were also captivated.

    There was a refreshing breeze.
    Look for the big sea lizards swimming and lounging about.
    You can take a relaxing river cruise.
    Cute restaurants and sights.

    Like one of the other reviewers, we were lucky to have Eddie as our tour guide - a tour arranged in advance by Trailfinders. He was immensely knowledgeable, well known in his locale, humorous and conscious of the fact that the day was hot and humid and we had only arrived the day before. The tour took in Dutch Square, with the statue to Queen Victoria in the centre. We visited Christ church and the ruins of St Paul's from which there are fantastic views of the city with the Straits in the distance.

    St Paul’s Hill is one of the good sightseeing options in Malacca. After a short climb from the townhouse, you are rewarded with views of the sea. There is a statue of St Francis Xavier, apart from ruins, at the top. You can then climb downhill to see A famosa. Good spot for panoramic views & clicks.

    The mosque was built on the water and seemed to be a popular tourist spot to watch sunset in Malacca. And yes, it looked romantically beautifully. However, the beach right next to the mosque's left offered a better view.

    There is a long stretch of the river from our hotel to the seaside and also to the other direction. What I find the authorities has done well is to have a decent path all the way beside the river on both sides. Of course certain places has closures eg development and piers where we had to figure out to go around. This is a very good exploration ride for unicycling as well as cyclist along the river and plentiful of wildlife to see eg monitor lizards, otters, fishes etc.

    The route is long and we didn’t even managed go all the way. Perhaps the next time

    Did this as part of a trip from a cruise ship, it would not normally be my sort of thing, but I enjoyed the views. We didn't queue for long and everyone is seated for the ride which was good.

    We had the hotel in this area because it's the more interesting area in Melaka full of activities and things to see.
    Almost everything can be reached in 10-15 minutes walking.
    Apart from some very small areas which are quite touristic. All the rest in authentic.

    A Famosa is an integral part of Melaka history.
    Built by the Portuguese in 1512.
    Occupied by the Dutch in 1641.
    Demolished by the British in 1807.

    Only the Porta de Santiago gatehouse and some ruins are left.
    Snap some photos with the cannons.
