Melaka Trip Day 3! 

We began the morning with a walk from our apartment at Mahkota Residence to Mei Sin Cafe, where we had breakfast. After a hearty meal we headed to Kampung Morten to begin our river walk. It was a quiet morning with hardly anyone around, due in part to the holy month of Ramadan.

We had intended to begin at the Ruins of Ermida de Rosario (Rosary Chapel) but the wooden walkway along The Shore was closed off, probably due to erosion. We then crossed the first bridge, the Kampung Morten Bridge. We walked due north along the length of Jalan Kampung Morten until we reached Lorong Tun Mamat 1 where we came upon the second bridge, the Jambatan Datuk Mohd Zin. We then got to Jalan Tun Mamat then onto Jalan Tun Ali which was in effect walking in an upside-down U-shaped direction.

We then walked across the third bridge, the Old Bus Station Bridge and continued walking along the Melaka River. We walked past the fourth bridge, the Jambatan Hang Tuah and continued in a general southeast direction. We came across the fifth bridge, the Jambatan Pasar and continued walking south along Jalan Baru before arriving at Jalan Kampung Jawa.

Here stood perhaps the most famous (or infamous?) bridge of all, the sixth bridge known as the Jambatan Kampung Jawa (nicknamed "Gates to Hell") where the local population was supposedly beheaded during the Japanese Occupation in the 1940s. We continued walking south to the very end of the river walkway past the seventh bridge, the Bridge of Chan Koon Cheng before walking past the Church of St. Francis Xavier and before long reached The Stadhuys. 

We ended our river walkabout which could also be called the bridge-spotting walkabout at the eighth and final bridge, the Tan Kim Seng Bridge. Be sure to read our previous blog on our morning walk along the fascinating streets of Melaka!
