Aesthetics – Malacca Facade

Malacca Melange

Often touted as one of the most historical city in Malaysia, Malacca (Melaka) certainly reflects its past in its architecture. No trip to this city situated about 1 1/2 hours away from KL can be considered complete without a stroll down Jonkers Street. We went here close to the Chinese New Year season and I took the opportunity to enjoy this photogenic road.

Final Words

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the look of Malacca. Her facade reflects similar influences of those found in Penang Island, especially in Georgetown. It’s a lovely melange of the east, the west and a history tracing back to the 1600s. Eventually I’ll do a Travel Anecdotes post where we explore beyond her facade and inside her nook and crannies. For now, hope you enjoy her doors and windows.

    1. Aww, how lovely to know. You must come again, they’ve been really working on highlighting the heritage architecture and food. Malacca was one of the main ports between China and India centuries ago hence lots of aesthetic relics to admire πŸ™‚
