15th Century port town of Malacca

Side streets seem a specialty of South East Asia and the Malaysian port town of Malacca has a mighty fine share. Take a rickshaw or simply wander around the tiny shops manned by Chinese vendors in the old part of this fascinating port town and you’ll see what side streets should always be about: specialty businesses abutting temples and narrow eateries of every ilk, folk across generations with families in tow, going about their business in semi shade and echoing, low-key bustle. Malacca has the history and cultural connections to satisfy all sorts of travel urges and the side street urge is well sorted in Malacca.
