How To Do A Walking Trail in Melaka

By Tobeontheroad
I have done many trails in different countries but every time I have to ask someone to choose a path or to identify a spot in which I am interested.I always go crazy by the replies I get.The person always gives a wrong direction and many times I have to backtrack the path and start the process again.One in 100 gives a right reply or say I do not know,Sorry.

But in Melaka the River side Trail is beautifully marked and no wonder many take the path in the early morning or in the late afternoon and enjoy the scenes around.As you start from Jonker street which is the most visited place by all Tourists the steps lead to a fantastic walkway where 4 people can comfortably walk along side.
