Whether you are a normal tourist or a backpacker, you opt for a historical trip and visit the small town of Malacca if the way you enjoy your visits is all not about beaches and mountains. This city came to being in 1400 AD when a Sumatran prince came to 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 some of the best places you can visit if you are up for such a trip.
The natural allure of Malacca is enhanced by the rich colonial past of Malacca. In the Malacca Heritage, you will find a Dutch trail in which the remnants of both the Dutch and British age are found in the form of Christ Church. It was constructed without utilizing any nails in the Dutch era, but the Anglican Church took it over and reinvented it when the British took over. 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 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. A popular Islam prophet known as Sultan Al Ariffin is buried in this island. You’ll find lots of details about Malacca which you will learn as you go to the island. There is a small museum which 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. As you walk will you will observe all the odd rock formations which are around the island.
