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 an infamous spot place for spice trade, and thus it brought plenty of conquerors from the Dutch, Portuguese and British. However, Malaysia acquired its independence in 1957.
As you might understand, Malacca has a rich culture and history that 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 quite odd along with it also. There are entry fees charged in the event you would wish to shoot some pictures of the inside of the church.
The Malacca Zoo and Night Safari is a wonderful place especially if you’re seeing with children. Since the zoo is enclosed with attractive greens that evoke a true rainforest; kids will adore the sights in the premises of the zoo. You can imagine how this affects people and the animals themselves. It feels like you are 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 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 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 will find a lot of information about Malacca which you will learn as you visit the island. There’s a little museum that handles this. After a long day walking and studying the history and culture, you deserve to spoil yourself by dipping 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.
