Kualumpur and Malacca - Day 3 and Day 4

Entrance to KL Cnetral Market

KL Central Market

So our last stop in KL on day 3 was the KL central market. We had heard that the KL central market is a great place to do some shopping at very affordable prices and we could not wait to explore. 
Though we had purchased clothes from KLCC we had some last minute shopping for souvenirs / handicrafts to be purchased from the market. As the name suggests its the market is quite close to the city centre and we took an Uber to the KL Central market. We had read some great reviews about the place and it really did not disappoint us as it was one of the better-organised markets, that we have visited.

Fish Spa

KL Central Market is quite large and after a lot of walking and picking up some stuff ( at some really good rates ), we were really tired when we spotted a fish spa. We have never tried a fish spa earlier and decided to give it a try. We took the 15 min package and the feeling was something very different. Definitely, a must try if in KL Central Market.

Fish spa- Yes thats the fish trying to gnaw at my feet

Lunch at KL Central

We had lunch at KL Central market in a restaurant on the first floor which was really a good place to grab a quick bite.

Malacca - Hatten Hotel Melaka

So after 2 and half days in KL which just whizzed by we were on our for a short trip to Malacca. Malacca is really a very small place that can be easily covered in a day. It is really quite famous among tourists for its World Heritage sites and it's laid back atmosphere.

We stayed at Hatten Hotel Melaka which was very close to the city centre and adjacent to the Dataran Pahlawan Shopping centre.

Jonker Street

No visit to Malacca is complete without a visit to the famous Jonker Street. We had read mixed reviews of the place that it is quite a touristy , but our suggestion is that if yo are in Melaka over the weekend , this is one place not to miss. From the countless number of shops selling everything under the sun , to the amazing street food and the walk along the river in the night, this is one experience not to miss.

Tip : A really great place for souvenir shopping for your home. 

Street Food- Jonker Street

Jonker Gallery - Go in here if you want to buy stuff for home decor

Malacca looked a lot like Paris at night.

Melaka Historical City Centre and Shopping @ Dataran Pahlawan

We had reached back to the hotel quite late in the night and we had a late start next day. We had planned for some shopping at Dataran Pahlawan mall and some sightseeing in the historic Melaka city centre.
