Melaka is another great tourist destination if you are planning to go to Malaysia. It also has its high-rise buildings but most of what you can see here is of historical significance.
But, despite its city center is small compared to Kuala Lumpur, you can find many different things to do in this humble city.
You can go on a river cruise, eat amazing Nyonya dishes, and even hang out with some KL Girl Escort in Malaysia – in Melaka as well.
Today, I am going to talk about the top things you can do in Melaka that you can do in either a day or two.
Admire the Street Art
There is a river cruise that you can go to in Melaka. It is a 45-minute cruise that allows you to see the many beautiful and traditional houses in the city.
But, despite most of the houses having traditional designs, there are some that are chic and modern in that they have amazing art painted on them.
That being said, the 45-minute cruise will take you somewhere memorable and I am willing to bet that when you back to Melaka that you will get on a cruise again.
The Lively Night Market
Jonker Street is Melaka’s answer to Kuala Lumpur’s Jalan Alor. This street is one of the main tourist attractions simply because of the number of stores and stalls that you can find, especially during the night.
Because it can get lively at night, a lot of people will try to flock the night market. You just have to lengthen your patience because I tell you that this would be a great experience for you.
You can find a lot of things that you can buy here and you can also eat some of the amazing Malaysian street food as well.
Do Some Café Hopping with Friends
Melaka is not short on cafés as well. Whether you just want a nice cup of coffee or you want to have some amazing meals along with it, you can definitely go to some local cafes in the city.
That being said, I especially loved my experience in the Navy Navy café as they have smoothie bowls that contain a lot of amazing nutrients and goodies. If you are a vegan, I highly recommend that you visit the Geography Café as it is a haven for vegetarians.
Worship at Cheng Hoon Temple
Malaysians typically practice Islam, but there are also other religions in the country. That being said, you can find many Buddhist temples all around Malaysia and there are some temples in Melaka as well.
Even if you do not practice Buddhism, the Cheng Hoon Temple, located in Jonker Street, still warrants a visit.
This temple is quite famous in the area since this is considered as the oldest Buddhist temple in Malaysia. The architecture, as well as the materials that are used in the construction of this temple, are worthy of your attention.
