Pretty soon, it is day 5 now and the number of people joining this trip has decreased to 7 people. There were 6 of us depart from Kuantan and the other one depart from her hometown. Then, we all meet up at Malacca, which is the destination of our extended trip.
Going down from the Red House is the Jonker Street. This area is listed under UNESCO world heritage site. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there will be night market along the Jonker Street. Too bad that we don’t have the chance to enjoy the night market as we came on Monday until Wednesday.
After some walking, finally we have found a cheap hotel. This is the Baba House Hotel and it is not where we are staying..haha.. We are staying at ABC Lodging (I forgot to take a picture of it), which is opposite of this Baba Hose Hotel. The room rate is RM20 per person.
It is around 6 pm after we settle down everything. Without wasting any minute, we went to explore the Malacca. However, we have no idea where to go and it is quite late already, so we were just wondering around the Jonker Street and went to the nearby shopping mall.
This is Casa del Rio. It is probably the most expensive hotel in the town. The cheapest room is RM778 (I am not even spending that much money for my whole one week trip) and the range is from RM778 to RM3878!
Further down a bit is this Taming Sari. It takes you to the top of the tower and stay at there for 7 minutes for you to have an overview of Malacca. What’s more important is it costs RM20 per ride per person! This is equal to our one night hotel rate.
Going further down is the shopping mall. There are altogether 4 big shopping mall within that area (if I count it right), namely the Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall (2 buildings), the Hatten Square and the Mahkota Parade.
After finished exploring and having our dinner, we went to ride the Melaka River Cruise. The last boat will be at 11pm and we reach there at 10pm. We bought the ticket and waiting for the boat. This is a shot I captured while waiting for the boat.
The next day will be our second last day of our trip. It will be a whole day of exploration and there is a little surprise awaits us. Stay tune!
