Malacca? Melacca? I don't know. We haven't to this part of the "Straits Settlement" yet and since we liked Penang and Georgetown we thought we'd probably like the crumbling charme of Malacca's Old Town as well. We should have done our research better - going over Chinese New Year by bus from Singapore involved 8 hours rides in both directions. But it was worth it! We obviously hiked the tourist trail and we particularly liked the illuminated Rickshaws at night. But you also had a chance of urban exploration and enjoyed those couple of days quite a bit. Hope you like the photos.
