Malacca, A trip to Malaysia
It was on the 4th day of our stay in Singapore when we got our Indonesian visa, and with already lots of money spent, we decided to move on right away; so we got on the bus towards Malaysia. We choose Malacca as our next destination since the day we got there; it’s close to the border and it is full of history. We booked a lovely hostel near the monuments, called ‘Ajit’s hostel and guest house’, and the owner Ajit seemed quite nice. When we saw the great kitchen and living room with futon, plasma TV and air conditioner, it was decided we’re not going anywhere for at least a day, I mean, in Singapore we did not have any cooling device in the hostel and we haven’t seen a TV since our last visit home in Macedonia. Oh just how we enjoyed our stay there! Ajit was too king to smuggle beer for us, as the alcohol was too expensive in the shops, it’s insane. As a 100% Muslim country, you could only imagine how many strange looks from the locals we were getting every day.
Our stay was more than pleasant; we rode bicycle every day around the historical monuments, Buddhist and Chinese temples, churches, night markets, museums and ate home cooked meals we did by our selves. It definitely felt like being on vacation in the middle of a big vacation. It’s crazy I know, but here is just peaceful, small city with lots of interesting places to visit, and we booked a week, so we weren’t rushing anywhere.
There was a street market every second day, we had a nice time trying the Malaysian traditional food going around the small shops buying some cheap stuff as it was much cheaper then our experience in Singapore.At night its probably the best to go in China town, everything is so light and positive there, they sell whatever you need, and of course for a cheap and decent price.
