Melaka

Melaka (a.k.a. Malacca) is the capital of the Malaysian state of Malacca.
Traditionally, the spot where Melaka stands today was the center of Malaccan history. It was the capital of the Malaccan Sultanate and the center of the Malay world in the 15th and the 16th century before it fell to the Portuguese in 1511. Centuries of colonization by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British have shaped the architecture of the town.

Food Paradise in Bukit Bintang. Jalan Alor turns into a giant open air street restaurant at night

Popular place to go for dinner for locals and adventurous tourists alike. The mostly Chinese restaurants offer a wide variety of food. Conveniently for tourists most of the menus have pictures of the dishes which makes it a great place to try out new dishes. It’s recommended to go there with a group of people to have more variety by sharing dishes. A must-try is the Chicken Fish!
Most restaurants are open until the wee morning hours.
To really feel the vibe of the city and it’s people, you have to have your dinner here once when you are in KL!

Jalan Alor upgrade works 2016
Jalan Alor upgrade construction underway
In early 2016 upgrade work as started (artist impression above, once work is completed in 2017) .
Despite a much need ugrade of infrastructure (piping, drainage etc.), also the store fronts will be "uniformed". We can only hope, that the character of the street will survive somehow. Good thing (for visitors), the street will be pedestrian only at night and blocked for traffic. More Information Here
