The Melaka riverside
When the day’s temperature cools, the bars and restaurants along the lengthy Melaka riverside heat up, making a lively place for an evening stroll. If you like shopping, head to the Jonker Street Night Market, which takes place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, selling tourist merchandise among daily produce, and will give you a great hit of Malay culture. Otherwise, zig zag across the numerous bridges to investigate the intriguing street art, historical buildings and food vendors. At 40kms (25mi) long, there’s plenty to see.
