Malacca, Malaysia in Photos
Malacca is a city on the southwest coast of the Malay peninsula. Once a Sumatran kingdom, Malacca has been occupied by Portugal, England, and the Netherlands. Nowadays, it is most well known for it's historic colonial era buildings and it's UNESCO World Heritage certified Chinatown.
Though only in the city for a little over 24 hours, I was quite impressed with how unique this sometimes-gaudy tourist destination turned out to be. Whether it's the colonial ruins, neon-bedecked rickshaws, floral tiles, temples, or tiny shrines - Malacca is incredibly photogenic.

Jonker Street Night Market
Located in Malacca's Chinatown, Jonker Street is the main tourist thoroughfare and also host to a large and bustling night market on weekends. We were lucky enough to be in Malacca on a Friday evening and managed to snag a few street eats, though there wasn't much vege-friendly fare.
Delightfully Tacky Rickshaws
