Melaka is ever so charming. The last time I was there must be more than 10 years ago! Good food and full of history and culture, unlike other parts of Malaysia! Great pics!! :* :* :*

HOLY SMOKE! Is that Malacca? For a moment I thought was Paris or Amsterdam.
I can't recognise the Malacca I once knew, ha ha.
Its beautiful now and the river looks clean too.
Used to go deep sea fishing in Malacca wayyyy back in the 60's.
Have fun, Monica, happy cruisin'
