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 an infamous spot place for spice trade, and thus it brought plenty of conquerors from the Dutch, Portuguese and British. But, Malaysia got 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 quite rich, and it adds to its natural attractiveness. In the Malacca Heritage, you will find a Dutch trail where the remnants of the British and Dutch era are found in the form of Christ Church. It had been constructed without using any nails in the Dutch era, but the Anglican Church took it over and reinvented it once the British took over. Along with it, the weathercock stands rather odd. 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. Children will love the sights in the premises of the zoo as it is enclosed with attractive greens which evoke a real rainforest. You can imagine how this affects people and the animals themselves. It seems just like you’re out in nature. The whole zoo is very spacious and provides a great variety of species to know more about including the Malayan gaur, wildebeests, tapirs, and iguanas. They also possess a fantastic aviary and enjoyable Orang-utan.
The Palau Beasr in Malacca is a site which will satisfy your historical cravings and sight or even more. A big island, the Palau Besar is popular for its Islamic gravestones and tombs that for several years have been a pilgrimage site of choice among Muslims. Sultan Al Ariffin, a popular Islam prophet is buried within this island. You’ll find lots of details about Malacca which you will learn as you go to the island. There’s a little museum that handles this. After a long day studying and walking the culture and history; you deserve to spoil yourself by diving into the clean beach waters.
As you go to the beach, ensure that you go to the Eves’ Village. You will see all of the odd rock formations which are all around the island.
