Melaka trip planning

Melaka is located on the Western Coast of Peninsular Malaysia facing the Straits of Melaka.

I wanted to go Melaka. I've have been there long long time ago. And because I have got my DSLR, I could have get lots of great pictures there. Delicious nyonya food is a main attraction for me too!

I have listed here the must go places in Melaka. If possible, hubby and I will stay in Melaka for one night during Chinese New Year's holiday.
  • Jonker Street - Known worldwide among famous antique collectors as one of the best places to hunt and bargain for antiques.
  • Christ Church - Built in 1753 by Dutch to commemorate a century of their rule.
  • Hang Li Poh's Well - It is said that the well never dried up, not even during times of extreme drought. It has long since been converted into a wishing well.
  • Maritime Museum - Get a closer look at Melaka from the famed Malay Sultanate of the 14th century to the Portuguese era, the Dutch era and the British era.
  • Baba-Nonya Heritage Museum - Art and objects illustrating Malaysia’s wide cultural diversity are on display in this restored home.
  • Porta de Santiago - The only remaining gateway of the formerly massive A’Famosa fortress.
  • Melaka Town Square - Town center during Dutch colonial times.
I'm recruiting friends to go Melaka with us, most of them doesn't want to go because "nothing to see"!
