Holiday @ Melaka

I guess most of the people went to Melaka for food hunting lol.
How about me? For sure were both :D
Here, i' m not going to share the historical background of Malacca (coz my history subject is poor), but there are some important landmarks we must visit in Melaka. A'Famosa is one of them. A Famosa, is part of a fortress built encircling the base of St. Paul's hill by the Portuguese in 1511. The gate is called Porta de Santiago.
Another landmark is the oldest protestant church in Malaysia named Christ Church. It constructed in magnificent Dutch wooden architecture.
Nearby Christ Church is the Stadthuys which was built in 1650 with unique Dutch mansonry and architectural skills. The salmon colour building of Dutch architecture is believed to be the oldest Dutch building in the East (circa 1641 and 1660). Now, they operate it as Historical and Ethnography Museum.
Within the square, there are the Queen Victoria's fountain built in 1901 and the Melaka Clock Tower built in 1886
You can experience the trisaw adventure by hire a trisaw to tour around the Melacca city or some of the main tourist attractions.
After the delicious dinner, we just simply hang along the Jonker Street and saw this funny stuff, were they candle holder?hehe...Jonker Street is basically a flea market with a Malaccan Cultural flavor. There are many stalls and shops set up along the street of Hang Jebat which selling curios, antique, souvenirs and so on. There are also many events and cultural shows being held on the street during weekends.
Walking along the street, you will discover a lot of shops and stalls which selling souvenirs with reasonable price. If you are tire of walking, make a stop at Stall 88, quench your thirst with a bowl of Melaka Cendol.
Experience the most sensational shopping of a lifetime. Witness the fusion of history with modern everyday shopping and exciting events at the largest megamall in Melaka!
As you stroll into the mall, you will enjoy a unique experience where heritage meets high fashion. We have the 2020 capsule that was officiated by one of the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad. At the same time, you will be amazed by the selection of stores that offers a unique shopping experience from trendy clothes to stylish jewellery, global brands to local artwork, you can have it all. Very nice place...
