Melaka maps still needs alot of tracks contributions.

Hopefully, you can provide with whatever you can :mrgreen:

Enjoy your trip.

just visited Malacca relying on mfm 1.24 and it did a good job getting me around. Some of the roads are still not shown but the main ones are there.


cheers

You must go to Auntie Lee's restaurant - probably the best Peranakan food in Melaka. Suggest you make booking and preorder; go there early too. Die-Die-Must-Try are: deep fried fish.

Try the chicken rice ball at N2 11.696 E102 14.909, have been eating in this stall for the past 30 years, this stall had been around since my father's times, i think at least 50 years of history, \:D/

Also must try the mee stall at N2 11.849 E102 15.068, only sell in the night.

If got time and space in your tummy, try this wanton mee at N2 11.799 E102 15.182, not the long hua resturan, is a very run down coffee shop, sold by a handicapped fat lady. :wink:

Sunday night still can go to the night market at N2 11.717 E102 14.881, look out for AMY YIP PAO.... :mrgreen:
