It’s everything the guidebooks say it is. Small, walkable historic core, variety of sights, sounds and tastes. Well worth a few days. Many Malaysian weekend tourists and westerners passing through.
Glad I came. But I’ve had enough of Malaysia for now. Or maybe it’s enough traveling for now. Could be just three nights of less than great sleep in a row. Either way I’m outta here tomorrow and on a bus to Singapore.
Melaka is known for Nyona food. Some of it was weird to me, some OK but nothing that I wanted twice except the coffee. Too many of the things I tried caused a bit of stomach discomfort as it worked to break down these new substances.
