Despite being the second smallest state in Malaysia, Malacca prides itself as a rich amalgamation of the different cultures. It has literally been a paradigm of East meets West even way before the advent of globalisation. Ask any Malaysian students about our country’s history and he or she would be quick to point out Malacca, the oldest city in Malaysia founded by a Malay Hindu prince, Parameswara in the 1400s.
Just as it is geographically small, nearly every tourist spot is within walking distance. There are gems to be discovered just about every corner and crevices.
One of the very first scenes when I landed at Malacca was actually…
Distinctively red, these Dutch-style shophouses are the only one of its kind in Malay Peninsular.
The footways are notably narrower than most other old shophouses in Malaysia.
