Go to Malaysia.
Go back to Bukit Takun.
Melaka street fair – click for video.
After coming down Bukit Takun, we headed south to the town of Melaka on Malaysia’s west coast. A night street fair in Chinatown provided some colorful entertainment and – once again – outstanding culinary experiences (durian ice cream for example). Our time in Malaysia came to an end the following day. We drove to Johor Bahru, returned our rental car and crossed the narrow strait back into Singapore…
