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 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 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 some of the best places 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 in which the remnants of both the Dutch and British age are found in the form of Christ 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. Along with it, the weathercock stands rather odd. If you would wish to shoot some pictures of the inside of the church; there are entrance fees charged.
The Malacca Zoo and Night Safari is a great place particularly if you are visiting with kids. 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 feels like you are 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 location that will satisfy your sight and historical cravings. 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 studying and walking the culture and history; you deserve to spoil yourself by diving into the clean beach waters.
Make Sure that you go to the Eves’ Village as you visit the beach. As you walk, you may note all of the strange rock formations that are around the island.
