Whether you are an ordinary tourist or a backpacker, if the way you prefer your visits is all not about mountains and beaches, and you can settle for a historical trip and go to the small city of Malacca in Malaysia. This town was established in 1400 AD when a Sumatran prince arrived in Malaysia after being banished from Singapore. Malacca is a favorite place for spice trade and so it brought plenty of conquerors from the Dutch, Portuguese and British. But, Malaysia gained its independence in 1957.
As you might know, Malacca has great wealth in culture and history which you may experience best face-to-face. Below are several of the best areas you can visit if you are up for such a trip.
The colonial past of Malacca is very rich, and it adds to Its natural beauty. In the Malacca Heritage, there are remnants of both the Dutch and British in the Dutch road which is in the form of Crist Church. It had been built without using any nails in the Dutch era, but when the British took over, the Anglican Church took it over and reinvented it. The weathercock stands rather odd on top of it too. There are entrance fees charged if you would want to take some photos of the interior of the church.
When traveling with children, the Malacca Zoo and Night Safari is an amazing place. Kids will adore the sights in the premises of the zoo since it’s enclosed with appealing greens that evoke a true rainforest. You can imagine the effect which this has on the visitors and the animals themselves. It appears just like you’re out in nature. The entire zoo is extremely spacious and offers a terrific selection of species to find out more about including the wildebeests, Malayan gaur, tapirs, and iguanas. They also have a good aviary and entertaining Orang-utan.
The Palau Beasr in Malacca is a place that will satisfy your historical cravings and sight or even more. A large island, the Palau Besar is infamous because of its Islamic gravestones and tombs that for many decades are a pilgrimage site of selection amongst Muslims. A popular Islam prophet known as Sultan Al Ariffin is buried in this island. You’ll discover a good deal of info about Malacca that you may learn as you go to the island. There is a small museum which handles this. After a very long day walking and researching the culture and history, you deserve to spoil yourself by simply diving into the clear beach waters.
As you go to the beach, ensure that you go to the Eves’ Village. As you walk, you may note all of the strange rock formations that are around the island.
