    Melaka Off The Beaten Path

    Here's the view of Porta de Santiago from the back. Like the front, the insignia of the Dutch company, VOC is stamped somewhere on the stone relief. Can you see where it is? VOC was a powerful Dutch trading company in the 1600's. So powerful was VOC that she was granted a monopoly of trading in the east and allowed to wage wars with foreign...

    Melaka Off The Beaten Path

    Visit the Portuegese Settlement, inhabited by descendants of the Portuegese who colonised Malacca (as Melaka used to be called) centuries ago.

Before you think this is the patron saint of the church, let me just say that it's actually the greatest Christian figure in Asia - St Francis Xavier.

  • Tanjung Bidara Beach

    I stayed at Tajung Bidara for one night. It didn't seem to be a popular destination. The beach was kind of quiet. The sand is soft and golden. Tanjung Bidara is a nice place to relaxed. But the downside is there is nothing around the beach. There is no town nearby (or perhaps I didn't know it). Directions: Tanjung Bidara is about 30km north of...

  • Alor Gajah Town

    The town of Alor Gajah is located to the north of Melaka city. Eventhough it is the main town for the district of Alor Gajah, it is often over looked by outsiders who will normally just pass by this town en-route to the historical city of Melaka. This is not suprising then as Alor Gajah town is just a small town with few row of shop houses (mostly...

    This is one fishing village with nice stretch of beaches between Port Dickson & Melaka City. I probably cannot find this place again even if I were to drive pass the same route.
