One of the best tourist destinations in the world is Melaka. This small city located in Malaysia is said to be the food capital of the nation, though it does provide other tourist attractions that you definitely have to see.
Whether finding a place to stay or getting a service girl escort, there are a lot of things that you can do in Melaka.
Here are some of the top tourist attractions in Melaka that you must visit:
For the most part, Jonker Street is just your typical street where you can find centuries’ old pre-war shophouses and some cafes.
However, when it turns 6 PM on Friday, it turns into an amazing place that is filled with a lot of shopping carts and food stalls that you must definitely try out for yourself.
But despite all of that, you can easily marvel the sights and the sounds of the weekend market. There are a lot of people that go here and there is definitely some things that you can take photos of to post on your social media accounts.
Malacca River Cruise
Just a side note, Melaka is actually also known as Malacca, so Malacca River also tends to be called ‘Melaka’ river as well.
That being said, ever seen those gondolas that go through the large canal in Venice, Italy? This is actually the Malaysian version of it, except that you go on a river cruise.
The entire cruise takes 45 minutes and it is enough time for you to see the landmarks and shophouses found in the area. In fact, the city has placed many different lights along the shoreline to make the cruise even worthwhile.
Melaka Botanical Garden
The Melaka Botanical Garden is actually half recreational park and half forest reserve. If you want to escape the bustling city for a while, then this is the place where you want to go to.
You can rent a bicycle or an electric buggy so that you can get to explore the entire garden in its entirety. Or better yet, if you have a lot of time to spare, just take a hike with your friends, family, or spouse.
If you want to marvel at a historical ship, the Maritime Museum in Melaka is actually a replica of the famous Portuguese Ship, the Flora De la Mar. When you enter the museum, you will find out the city’s trading history during the golden age.
Melaka was once colonized by the Dutch and the Stadthuys is evidently made with Dutch Architecture in mind.
The bright terracotta-red historical quarters will give you a trip down memory lane; back in a time when the place was still colonized by the Dutch up to the present times.
The entire building is huge and if your feet is already tired, you can hire a trishaw ride- complete with fairy lights and music that will make your tour even more worth it.
