The night market on the Friday night was fine, not too busy. On Saturday it was packed! After 20 mins pushing through people we gave up and retired to the hostel to watch a movie.

This bustling night market was a real eye opener. We got to try some local delicacies, like Popiah which is basically the tasiest fresh spring roll ever.

 

Birdie on the shoulder

We spotted this inquisitive little fellow perched in one of the plants at the side of the night market. His owner then posed for a photo.

I couldn’t work out if he was the bird’s owner, or just a random person. They seemed to get on well though!

Malaysian graffiti

We spotted some colourful Malaysian graffiti on some buildings which really stood out during the cruise.

Here’s another reason why Melacca reminded me of Brighton, the graffiti.

I loved the contrast of the vibrant grafitti on the old, historic buildings.

 

Cruising down the river

Sat 5th November 2011

Today we jumped on the Melacca River Cruise which slowly winds up the river, so you can sit back and relax while taking in the sights.

Staying in Melacca has slowed the pace down quite considerably. Everything here is relaxed and carefree.

 

Famous Jonker street

Fri 4th November 2011

This is the famous Jonker street and where we got lost on our first day in Malacca. There are so many antique shops to explore and countless side streets littered with craft workshops.

Matt says...

I really loved Jonker Street, it really reminded me of the Lanes in Brighton.
