Travel Blogs from Melaka
We spent four days in Melaka town, on the west coast of Malaysia between KL and Singapore. We got the bus there from KL. It was a nice and easy journey, just two hours from KL, although, it took us a while to find the right bus station as it has moved recently.
Melaka is interesting but had a slightly run down feel. An UNESCO world heritage site because of it's unique cultural and historical background, it was a major trading port ...

After he repeated this process of picking up coconuts and dancing around them for a second time we decided he had probably had enough of ...
