Melaka town centerMelaka is a quaint town with lots of history and tourists. Somehow it manages to keep its authenticity despite the large number of tour buses. Town square, Chinatown, the shopping mall, night bazaar and neighborhoods are all interesting. Visited the Maritime Museum, People’s Museum and fort.

Travel–took a bus from KL (Puduraya station) to Melaka; it took 2.5 hours.

Lodging–Baba’s Hotel in Chinatown. Very nice, well-located. Interesting architecture and antique lobby furniture. Baba Nonya are descendants of Chines and Malay unions. Baba are the men; Nonya are the women.
