How to find this place? Just waze Jalan Klebang Besar, it is located near the submarine museum.
There are pretty murals and 3D arts along the street in Melaka which are famous among tourists. There are lots of them but some are hard to find. If you love taking pictures, make sure to explore every streets, along the river, between shops and if you couldn’t find them, you can always ask the local.
I am surely to come here again to have another round of foodporn and photoshooting.
