Malacca is very lovely small town. Full of guesthouses though (really full). But they are pretty and doesn't bother in the UNESCO centre. You can definitely see the Europien architecture in this town.

Coconut shake is my favorite drink in Malacca. You can find this drink in many drink stands. Sometimes they would put one scoop of ice cream on the top. That's awesome!
