This is where I spent most of my time in Malaysia.. to me, it is a perfect place to go with your rucksack and just let your creative juices flowing because practically the whole village, even the backyard is like a living art gallery..
I’ve seen similar places during my travels where the community maintains the place to be artsy like Chiang Mai. Although of course Melaka is a bit different because it’s like a fusion of Chinese, Indian and Malay artistry in one village..
Even the mosque is Chinese inspired.
My hostel is in the Chinese part of the place, then around 15 minutes and you’ll arrive in one part that is Indian, then of course there’s the Malay community.
So you see it’s not really a total mix, its more like being unique as Chinese, Indian or Malay, yet these 3 major race are still living beside each other in harmony..
