Malacca: Walking Around Chinatown – It was a sunny afternoon after eating some Cendol and Laksa at the always-crowded Jonker88 Cafe. We strolled around the Chinatown area, which also known as the area around Jonker Walk (Jalan Hang Jebat). This place is very similar to Penang, the old-school electic straits shophouses and the street are almost the same. It’s just that the street in Malacca is narrower and the number of these shophouses are less than in Penang.
One thing I like about Malacca is that they truly develop this heritage part of the city into a living museum and tourist area. It’s so tourist concentrated with souvenir shops, cafe, restaurant and guesthouse all around this place. I like walking around the heritage area, it’s like bring me back in time.
Inside Cheng Ho Tea House & Museum. Ground level is free of charge and one have to pay RM10 to visit the upper level.
The No. 8 Heeren Street is a museum located on Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, also known as Heeren Street is currently number 1 to-do in Malacca according to TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, it was closed when we were there. I’ve no idea what is it about but curious.
Do you like Malacca? How about Penang? Penang is the best, because I am from Penang. =D
