Am back from an amazing 5 days in Malacca. It is just impossible to describe in words the sights, sounds and texture of this oldest city in Malaysia. It is like travelling back in time in South East Asia. My favourite spot there has got to be Jonker St, a place well known by antique collectors as one of the best places to hunt and bargain for antiques. Come nightfall, Jonker St closes to traffic and hawkers on pushcarts gather to sell all kinds of delicious street food and local handicrafts.

I just love getting lost in the narrow twisted streets, discovering hidden treasures and taking in the olden day charms of the shophouses inspired by the baba-nyonya culture. I have put together some of my favourite flickr pictures of Malacca. Just click here and be transported back to this historic town you would not want to miss.
