Melaka is one of the best places in Malaysia when it comes to both history and culture. You can visit many historical sites, behold some colonial relics that were brought by the British, Portuguese, and Dutch, and you can also sample many scrumptious foods as well.
That being said, if you are planning to go to the place, then you’ve come to the right article. Today, I am going to talk about 6 top things you can do when you are in the place. And oh, did you know that they are known to have some of the best escort services in the country?
Plan a Guided Tour
Since Melaka is known for its rich cultural and historical heritage, you can book a guided tour that will bring you to the various historical places in the city.
Most guided tours will bring you to sites like Chinatown, the Dutch Square, St. Paul’s Church, among many others.
They are quite knowledgeable about the history of Melaka and they can also offer other places that you can visit in the city as well.
The place is touted to be the ‘soul’ of the city. Jonker Street, especially at night, transforms into a colorful street that is filled with many vendors and shops that you can visit.
You can buy anything for a bargain and after you’re finished shopping, you can sample some of the best street foods in the world.
During the weekends, you will have a chance to look at more shops as it will open up new stalls for the weekend night market.
When you visit this wooden village, you would instantly assume that this is just part of Malaysia culture but if you actually go inside the houses, you will find a major difference.
The houses in the Kampung is actually filled with the artifacts of the Portuguese and tourists who have been to this place say that the aura is a bit different- it is much holier than others.
There are many things that you can visit while you’re on Temple Street. You can either go to the Kampung Keling Mosque, the 18th century Sri Poyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Hindu Temple, or even Malaysia’s oldest Buddhist temple, the Cheng Hoon Teng.
Shore Sky Tower
The Shore Sky Tower is one of the tallest structures in Malaysia and I want you to pay close attention to the 43rd floor.
That is because, on this floor, you will find a panoramic view of the city spanning 31 miles. This is a haven for both thrill-seekers and photographers, especially if the cloud doesn’t have any clouds.
I highly recommend that you visit the Shore Sky Tower, especially if it is a sunny and warm day.
Malacca Food Trail
Melaka (or Malacca) is touted to be the country’s food capital, so tourists who want to get fed and experience a diverse food culture should surely visit the Malacca Food trail.
You can try many different foods, including the Cendol which is their shaved ice dish covered in green jelly.
You can taste Peranakan flavors and there is seriously a lot of different foods that you can choose from.
