Melaka Trip Day 3! 

The last time we were in Melaka we were still recovering from a Covid-19 infection and were not at full strength. This time around we were almost back at peak health and were eager to go on another walkabout.

We had intended to hail a Grabcar to Mei Sin Cafe at the Bunga Raya area, but alas there were no drivers available yet at 8am. We then decided to take a leisurely walk from our apartment in Mahkota Residence all the way to the cafe, a good 2 kilometres away.

We set off from Mahkota Residence and walked across Jalan Syed Abdul Aziz headed north along Jalan Mahkota past Mahkota Parade. We then walked across Jalan Merdeka and turned left headed west for a while before turning right at Dataran Pahlawan due north again along Jalan Taman.

We reached Jalan Kota where we turned left headed northwest, past a row of museums before meeting up with Jalan Merdeka again. We turned right due northeast onto Jalan Laksamana and walked past The Stadthuys, the Melaka Clock Tower and Christ Church.

We then walked across Jalan Laksamana and turned right due northeast along a row of old heritage shop lots until we reached the Church of St. Francis Xavier. There was a fork in the road here and we chose to walk along Jalan Bunga Raya headed north.

Jalan Bunga Raya has a special place in our hearts as it was where we spent the most time during the days when Ramada Plaza Hotel still existed. We continued walking along due north Jalan Bunga Raya past Cat’s favourite Teck Ann Chinese Medicine shop until the intersection with Jalan Munshi Abdullah.

Here we walked across and continued north for a little while more before arriving at our chosen breakfast spot, Mei Sin Café.

After breakfast we began our river walking, strolling the entire length from Kampung Morten all the way to Hard Rock Café. From here we doubled back along Jalan Laksamana, then Jalan Merdeka and then Jalan Kota before arriving at Dataran Pahlawan where we ended our morning walk.

Be sure to watch our next video on our morning river walk along the Melaka River!
