Chinatown and Petaling Street Market
After visiting and taking pictures at Merdeka Square, I continued to walk to the nearby food street: Petaling Street Market. Because it was just the morning, this place was quite deserted and there were few food stalls.
Petronas Twin Towers
Because there’s nothing much to play here, we took a round trip and then took the train heading to the famous place of Petronas Twin Towers. A few minutes walk from Chinatown to Pasar Seni Station (KJ14), from this station take the red line towards Gombak station. Then stop at KLCC station (KJ10) to reach the twin towers.

After sightseeing, taking photos at Batu Caves, it was afternoon so we came back. On the way it was raining and the passengers were very crowded so the group had to split in 2 groups. When we return the hotel, it was already dark. Fortunately, the street food area is at the foot of the hotel, so I just need to step out will meet a lot of restaurants. No need to walk far for dinner. End of day 4.

In the morning of the day 5, we woke up early and went around the hotel area to look for a restaurant for breakfast. Because it is quite early, most shops are not yet open. After going 1 round and we return to the food court near the hotel and fortunately some restaurants have opened so we stopped for breakfast.
Traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Malacca

After some friends left, we continued to take the train to Bandar Tasik Selatan station, then through the Bersepadu Selatan Terminal Bus Terminal (TBS) to buy tickets to Melaka.
The bus stops at Melaka Sentral station, from here we catch Grab to the hotel to check in. If you go alone, catch Grab bike, if you go with a large group, take a Grab car, otherwise take a bus instead of taking a taxi because it is quite expensive.
Jonker Walk Street Night Market
After checking in, we walked to the famous Jonker Walk night market to find snacks and dinner. This street food court is especially bustling on weekend evenings when thousands of people flock to this road to have fun and eat. Hundreds of shops are sold all kind of items along the 2 sides of the road, from restaurants, bars to jewelry, handicrafts, souvenirs…
Dutch square, A Famosa Fortress and St. Paul’s church
Then I walked around the famous areas close together such as the Church and the Dutch square (Christ Church & Dutch Square, The Stadthuys, The Red Square), A Famosa Fortress and St. Paul’s Church.
From the square with a short walking you reach the ruins of A Famosa (A Famosa Fortress) and St. Paul’s Church. At this square area in the evening, there are many colorful tricshaws decorated with colorful cartoon characters such as Doraemon, Kitty cat, superhero, etc… with loud music.
