Make Your Vacation More Memorable at Melaka
UNESCO named Malacca as one of the World’s Heritage sites back in 2008 and as a result, tourism in the city has been booming ever since.
When people talk about Malaysia, they usually refer to Kuala Lumpur since it is the country’s capital city. But, there are other cities in Malaysia that are worth traveling to.
Malacca or Melaka is definitely a place that you must visit simply because of the rich colonial history and the fact there is simply a lot of things that you can do.
Today, I am going to go over some of the best things that you can do in Melaka that you should put in your itinerary.
I will let you in on a bonus: I’ve heard that they offer the best KL Girl Escort in Malaysia at affordable prices.
With that out of the way, let’s get on with the list, shall we?
Ride a Trishaw
There are many things that you can do in Red Square (or Dutch Square for some). One of those things is riding a Trishaw. A trishaw is like a bike or a motorbike with a small passenger wagon at the back of it.
The cool thing about these rides is that they are pretty colorful and full of life. In fact, you can find some that are inspired by popular cartoons, including Hello Kitty, Pokemon, Super Mario, and so much more.
You can ride one of these trishaws in Dutch Square, though there are some parts of the city where you can find them as well.
Eat at Nancy’s
Peranakan or Nyonya Cuisine is one of the staples here in Melaka. That is because the Peranakan people migrated to Malaysia back in 15th-century and they’ve shared their culture with the locals ever since.
If you want to sample some of the best Nyonya cuisines, I suggest that you head on over to Nancy’s Kitchen. Because of its popularity, you will always find this place filled with people as this is one of the only restaurants in Melaka that serve authentic Peranakan dishes.
That being said, despite its taste and the allure of the place, you will be surprised that it is not at all too expensive when you dine here.
Go Up at the Taming Sari
For just RM20, you can go take a ride at the Taming Sari Tower. This 80-meter tower will allow you to see the harbor city in full view and it only takes less than 7 minutes to complete the ride.
Take a Stroll Along Jonker Walk
Aside from the food and items that you can buy in this famous street, you can also find some Peranakan houses here as well.
I suggest that you also go back here during the night as it turns into a lively night market where you can find some of the best foods in Asia all in one street!
Cool Down with Some Cendol
Cendol is a shaved ice dessert that is a staple here in Melaka. It is quite cheap and since Malaysia is quite a hot country, you definitely want to grab a bite.
Climb the Portuguese Museum
Flor De La Mar Museum is a Portuguese Museum that is built like one of the Portuguese vessels that were used to colonize Malaysia back in the day. Here, you will find out about the history of the place back when the Portuguese had set foot on the land.
