Postcards from Around Malaysia : Malacca

With so many diverse and beautiful spots scattered around Malaysia, most of the time you don’t even need to get on a plane to discover something new. In a year of living in KL we have taken such pleasure in visiting the rest of the country so I thought I’d put together a set of postcards of some of our favourite spots, featuring one place at a time.

To start with, one of our absolute favourites; Malacca. But over the weeks I will bring you snippets from Penang, Taman Negarah, Ipoh, Langkawi and more… So watch this space! S x

  

Malacca: So rich in culture, colours and child-friendly venues it’s the perfect Malaysian getaway and just a 2-hour drive from KL. While some may say you can do it in a day trip, I love the city so much and feel there are enough things to see (and do!) that it warrants at least two days to explore!

Whether travelling with children or not, don’t miss out on:

A Melaka River Cruise

Wandering around the colonial district, Christ Church and Dutch Square

The Maritime Museum

A visit to the A’Famosa Fortress and St. Paul’s Church

A ride on a colourful Trishaw (by night is surreal!)

A walk down Jonker Street and experiencing the night market

The Floating Mosque
Other places that may be of interest but that we didn’t personally try are:

Menara Saming Tari (Revolving Tower)

Mini Malaysia & ASEAN Cultural Park

Melaka Zoo and Night Safari

Upside Down House Gallery 

The Pirate Adventure
