Christmas Celebration In Portuguese Settlement




This is another post with video clip that about Christmas celebration. The first and second video clips for previous posts were recorded in Perth, Australia. This video clip was taken in Portuguese Settlement.

Perhaps you think that Portuguese Settlement is in Portugal but actually it's not. For your information, Portuguese Settlement is in historical city of Malacca, Malaysia.

Portuguese Settlement formerly was a fishing village but has turned into a quite populated residential area. Most of the residents here are descendants of Portuguese. They celebrate Christmas every year by decorating their houses with beautiful light.

The Malacca State Tourism Authority promotes this settlement to be a tourist attraction. The Lisbon Hotel was built here recently to provide accommodation for tourists. There is a square here with pubs, restaurants and souvenir shops. There will be performance of Portugal folk dances during week end to entertain visitors from all over the world.
