A short walk by the Malacca river

by William Teh September. 04, 2011 8267 views

Once dubbed ‘Venice of the East’ by European seafarers back in those days when the state has yet to be formed, the Malacca river was once an important trade route during the heyday of Malacca Sultanate in the 15th century. It has lost most of this function in the present and is a mere tourist attraction.

A view of the river from the bridge.

Ready or not, I'm coming…

Mural on the walkway along the river.

Old houses along the river under renovation and beautification.

It wasn't raining but something was dripping…

Something just doesn't match…

A lot of monitor lizards along the river.

What a great way to relax.

Lamps that light up the bridge.

Huge monitor lizards can be seen along the river. Amazing patterns on the back of this fella.

Huh?????

Extended antenna? Horizontally? Hmmm….

What!!!

It's called the “Market Bridge” which leads to the market on the other side of the bank.

William, you have an eye for the interesting little details. This is a great post.
Do you get paid by Kindle for such good advertising?
