Yep, and it has this genuinely mysterious feeling about the place (the thought that it was the centre of trade more than 600 years ago!). Historically speaking, Melaka is the common denominator for most modern Malaysian cities (and Singapore).

Hope to make a trip down there soon, then to Penang, JB, Ipoh, Taiping, Klang…

Yup..I love the pre-war and pre-independence buildings in Penang and Malacca.KL have some too but they are renovated too much that they lost their appeal.I hope someone can search the East Coast cities' colonial buildings.

teckkang,i believe u have the unofficial role of findings pics of Malacca's colonial buildings .

Plenty pics of pre-war buildings in Penang.All transfered from Penang and Penang street level thread.

Ooohh yeah, here are some historical pics of Penang. I got them few years ago, but I can't remember what was the source. As I think, all ppl that care about Penang would also like to know how did Penang look in the past. I guess all of these pics were taken before I was born , may be 50 years ago or older. See how the Esplanade has changed, and the pic also showed a steamship ! Wow ..
Also at Beach Street, Penang Road, Ligth Street ... etc, luckily it is still can recognise many of those buildings even now. May be you guys can take from the same angle and show how those area has changed. Sure our anak cucu will appreciate for these . .. . Penang Banzai !!

Pablo, answer your question, I am in JP now.
SEAfan, I agree with you. We can build more and more new hi-tech buildings, but we can not afford to lose those priceless herritage buildings in Penang.

These are some more historical pics about old and new public transportations in Penang. I didn't know Penang had double decker once in the past. The background is Penang Road Polis Station or we call it "Si-Hon-Lau".




Penang Ferry in 1958 and 1980's.

KL's pre-independence buildings

Jalan Doraisamy project restoration and preservation or officially known as Asian Heritage Row project is a charming neighborhood of tastefully refurbished pre-war residences which now house a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, wine bars, and night spots


This small and humble area of the capital city is now fast becoming the trendiest and finest place for fine-dining and nightlife. Privately funded project, managed by Asian Heritage Row and fully endorsed by the city hall and Sheraton Imperial Hotel, their main objectives are to preserves and restores the forgotten and abandoned pre-war residences along the strip into its former glory and turning the neighborhood into distinctively gastronomical and nightlife heaven.


More colonial buildings are given their new makeover along with their new possessors, club and restaurant owners.

Unlike contemporary and ever popular Bangsar, Hartamas and Jln Sultan Ismail strip, this part of the capital city is obviously under rated or unheard especially among visitors. With its colonial and pre-war architecture, Asian Heritage Row will surely charm any visitors and locals alike.

This area is easily assessable by:-
Monorail: Raja Chulan Station
LRT: Dang Wangi
