  • I went at night and the river lights are very colourful. There are many tourists sitting next to the river for beer while enjoying the music.
  • We went to Malacca to celebrate Chinese new year, just before corona hit Malaysia. We using the bus and arrive in Malacca bus station, then using another bus to reach the Malacca down town. The scenery in Malacca is wonderful. Plenty historical building and attractions. Food stalls also everywhere.
