It is good that the Melaka Historical City Council has lit up the main roads from Ayer Keroh into Melaka City Centre. Colourful lights were strung along the lamp posts along the routes. To some extent, the lights have made the roads into the City colourful and give an air of festivities around the city.
The Melaka Historical City Council should go a further mile by lighting up strategic historical sites around the city. Flood lights mounted at these sites can create and enhance the value of these sites. Sites like the Stadthuys, A Famosa, Istana, St.Peter's Church, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, Kampung Hulu mosque, Poh San Teng etc. can be made to "glow" at night from 7.00pm until mid-night from Fridays to Sundays. By doing so,these sites can attract visitors to visit them at night.
At the same time, webcams should be installed around these areas for people around the world to view them via the Internet. With cheaper broadband internet connections, it is now inexpensive to install such webcams. They can help promote Melaka to the world.
