A Day in Melaka (Malacca)

Melaka is such a small city, in fact the third smallest city in Malaysia. But it has many eye-catching sights and attractive establishments. No wonder, it is one of the favorite destinations of tourists.

Hubby and I woke up early to make sure that we’ll get to see those must visit places and not miss the boat. πŸ˜‰ Before we left the guest house, Tang House, I packed all our things and informed Mr. Tang that we’ll be checking out at 2pm. After we had breakfast, we started our walking tour at around 7am. For me, that is the best way to go around the city because you get to see everything and get yourself familiarized with the place.

As we were walking down the street, I can’t help myself not to admire the beauty of Melacca. πŸ˜‰ Everything is beautiful! Even the weather…. it was not as hot as KL and the air was so refreshing! We didn’t get any sunburn in fairness! πŸ˜€

After visiting all the famous landmarks of Melaka, we headed to Jonker Street. It’s popular for cheap finds and good foods. Next time, we’ll try to visit Jonker Street on a Saturday night to see numerous vendors selling their goods on the street and of course to buy items that would suit our taste. hehehe. πŸ˜‰

      Hi Rachelle! Yung twin room nila is RM55. I emailed Mr. Tang, the owner, para magpa-reserve ng room. Yup, kailangan mong mag-book in advance kasi since mura siya mabilis mapuno. I think, 2 months before nung trip ako nag-book. Walang downpayment, hehehe. Mabait naman si Mr. Tang, madaling kausap (sa email). πŸ˜‰ You can check my other post here about Tang House. πŸ™‚

      Try mo baka meron pa. Palagi namang sumasagot si Mr. Tang sa emails kaya for sure may makukuha ka agad updates sa available rooms niya. Good luck and thanks for dropping by! πŸ˜‰
