There was a bridge not too far away from us, it’s the Jambatan Pasar (Market Bridge). So we decided to cross to the other side of the riverbank…

Once we crossed the bridge, there were many murals painted on the building’s wall…yes, many of them…

If time allow, I would like to capture all the murals photo in the area…there were really nice and some of them reflected the culture of Malacca (Melaka). By sitting at the riverbank and admiring the murals was one of my enjoyment during the evening…

After the buildings full of the street arts, we came to a row of cafes and pubs, these are the nightlife area of Jalan Kampung Hulu of Melaka town. Well, it’s nice to have a cold draught beer while enjoy the cool breeze along the Malacca River…at least for me. 🙂

The cafe above was Not the only one but with full row of it…until the last shop was a Chinese Seafood Restaurant, the restaurant business was good while we passed by…I guess the seafood here must be delicious! 🙂

After the seafood restaurant, we reached the Hang Tuah Bridge, we decided to cross it again and back to the hotel because it was about dinner time…

Standing on the bridge and looking around on the both riverbank, hmm…this was the ‘River’ which started the Malacca (Melaka) Empire during the 1600s…and also the began of the Tanah Melayu which is Malaysia today.

We stopped at the place where we started and the whole riverbank walk is around 3.6km (with the proper pathway), which I’m intend to do it in the near future. It was really nice and enjoying walk along the river, where I can slowly view on all the colonial buildings which build on half century ago…

Beside this scenery, it is also a Good place for long exposure photography! Which I’m going to try it on the late evening…
