Malacca

The classy architecture!!

View Thai - Sia (July- August 2004) on sulemaniya's travel map.

The Malaysian city which is very unmalaysian. The architecture is the first thing you notice when you come here a lasting influence of the Dutch who had colonized this city. Malacca is a medium city but nearly al the monuments are in close proximity with the most famous street over here being Jonker's street. this is the place which has BABA KONYA's tomb besides it has also got a great religious mix with hindus, christians and muslim places of worship being very close together and they also live in peace.

Jonkers street has a lot of food shops as well as craftsmen shops who are skilled in the Malaysian traditional crafts,which has a lot to do with wooden face masks etc. Besides they also sell very amazing Batik Silk here.

Malacca is one city which must be on every travellers list as it has a lot more to offer than i can define because i have forgotten a lot of stuff which i did here.
