Shophouse

This spot is not too far from the mouth of the River Malacca and the historic city centre. Malacca has a significant Chinese origin population and this is a shophouse not unlike the ones in Penang and Singapore. Normally there are rows and rows of shophouses to be found. But I liked this one owing to its fresh appearance. A very enjoyable afternoon. 


Once they would house a shop on the ground floor and living space on the upper floors. Today, they have largely been converted to eateries, souvenir shops or backpacker lodges.

A very fine specimen, indeed, Ayush, especially with your wide-angle POV.
