Portuguese Settlement Christmas Celebration

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 but this video clip was taped in Portuguese Settlement. You might think that Portuguese Settlement is in Portugal but it's not. For your information, Portuguese Settlement is in historical city of Malacca, Malaysia.

Portuguese Settlement formerly was a fishing village but now it is a housing estate. 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 restaurants, pubs and souvenir shops. There will be performance of Portugal folk dances during week ends.
