Malacca River Walk

Inspired by our Malacca River Cruise, Linh and I decided to walk back down the Malacca River to explore part of the route in more detail.

Malacca-River-8

We disembarked from the River Cruise boat near the Maritime Museum...

Malacca-River-7

...and passed the Malacca Sultanate Watermill, one of Malacca's latest landmarks.

Malacca-River-12

Shortly after passing the main square, there's a major sign on the side of a building announcing Malacca's UNESCO World Heritage City status.

Malacca-River-11

Walking along the river was a pleasant experience which enabled us to check out some old interesting buildings and peer into some studios and caf├ęs along the way.

Malacca-River-6

There was a pet shop which just seemed to be crammed full of cages containing all kinds of birds, rabbits and rodents. The shopkeepers were hosing down the floor when we passed by.

Malacca-River-9

Malacca-River-3

I did wonder about how ideal the river seemed to be to live next to as it was pretty picturesque and peaceful.

Malacca-River-2

But there did appear to be signs of poverty with one part of the river bordering a shanty-town like settlement.

Malacca-River-1

I guess land next to the river isn't at a premium unlike along the banks of London's River Thames.
