Since I have made a habit of posting when traveling, it’s good for my memory, my wife and I went to Melaka in Malaysia again this weekend. To one of my favourite places there, Jonker walk. Quite old world it is, the buildings, even the hotel in the middle of the dilapidated town, everything about the place. I often compare Jonker to one of my other favourite destinations, Hoi An in Vietnam. In both places it feels like you are in another time period, maybe 100 years ago, except for the cars. Apparently developed by the Chinese and Portuguese, Melaka is a city derived from the harbour many years ago, circa 15th century. I reckon everyone would love Jonker walk, not just romantics like me.

Love this photo of you by one of our top 3 favourite spots in Melaka/Malacca! We would have durian chendol by the river and watch life and human activity as it cruises by 🙂
Despite the arduous drive when are we going back to one of our favourite places to travel?
