Melaka, Historical State

Have you ever been to Melaka? Melaka is a very historical state towards the south of Malaysia and is hugely popular with the tourists. Melaka was previously under the Portugese and Dutch many years ago and they have left a legacy in the form of beautiful red buildings, interesting designs on shophouses and lots of historical spots. The rich Baba and Nyonya heritage from the Straits settlers too have their own history and uniqueness in the form of beautiful homes and household items. One of the most popular streets there is Jonker Walk which is filled with antique shops and a rare coin dealer at every other shop. If you have never been to Melaka, you should definitely pay it a visit. You never know what you might find there!
