6 Best Things to Do in Malacca

KL Girl

When we talk about Malaysia, people instantly assume that I am referring to Kuala Lumpur, its capital city. However, there are other states in the country that are actually also worth your time.

Malacca is one of those states that are quieter compared to Kuala Lumpur, but there are certainly some places that you can do go to that are worth your time and money.

That being said, whether you are visiting a heritage site or acquiring the state’s finest girl escorts, you can definitely find something to do in Malacca. Read on to find out some of them.

Menara Taming Sari

Just like in Kuala Lumpur, Malacca has its own high-rise structures. If you want to get possibly the best view of the entire city, then go to Menara Taming Sari.

This is a gyro tower that will give you a 360-degree view of the entire city. The ride is actually 7 minutes long but it is more than enough for you to find your next attraction in the state.

Melaka River Cruise

Keep in mind that Malacca is also known as Melaka for some locals. Anyway, if the idea of going up a tower is not your thing, then you can go down below and take the river cruise throughout the Melaka River.

The entire river cruise will last for 45 minutes and that is more than enough time for you to enjoy some historical sites. You can even look at some of the old villages that were built along the riverside as well.

If you want to book a cruise, you need to find one of the jetties. One is located at the Hang Jebat Bridge and look for the Taman Rempah Jetty. The other is the Maura Jetty which is located next to the Quayside Heritage Center.

Batik Making

Aside from knowing how to cook some Malaysian dishes, you can also learn how to make Batik. For those of you who do not know, Batik is known by locals as intricate art that is either painted on a canvass or a piece of cloth.

That being said, you can actually learn how to make Batik through the various workshops in the city. Enrolling in this class will give you more appreciation of the craft.

Savor Some Peranakan Dishes

Malacca is part of Malaysia that is home to the Peranakan, which are descendants of 15th-century Chinese Immigrants. Peranakan dishes are made with Chinese ingredients that are cooked and prepared using various Malay cooking techniques. Savor these dishes in various restaurants in the city.

A’Famosa Resort

This fun resort is 45 minutes away from the main city, but it is definitely a place worth going to because of the fun that awaits you there.

It consists of a huge water park, a cowboy town, and an animal safari that both parents and children will surely love.

Jonker Street

Jonker street is somewhat akin to Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur. That is because you can find many shops, restaurants, and even museums in this area. In fact, you can sink a lot of time here and you would still not be able to complete everything in one go.
