Wonderful scenery

I tried this Taming Sari at night. The scenery was so wonderful. You can see the Malacca city in around 5 km. So many lights. Very nice trip

Came here on a Sunday morning. They start business around 10 a.m. The ticket price is RM 15 for mykad holders. You get a complimentary set with mineral water and a muffin inside. The ride gives you a birds eyes view of the city of Melaka and just a little tip: if you still haven't planned where to visit in... More

I've never been to a place with so much historical value than in Malacca. You are literally walking within the history books once you get around this area, and it is quite distinctive of a portuguese-conquered site. Try going to Macau and you'll see a lot of resemblance of that place in here. The red-bricked streets, the feel of it.... More

Air conditioned and view the city from the top. Goes around three times before it comes down again. Have your picture taken first, you may want to purchase the pics as souvenirs. Children receives a welcome cake biscuits and bottle of water. Souvenir shops, drink and ice cream can be purchased here. The Trishaw bicycle tour can take you here... More

I'm not good with heights so wasn't sure about taking this revolving tower to the top, but I needn't have worried as you are seated in aircon and completely enclosed behind thick glass. The revoving platform moves slowly round as it rises so you scarcely feel the movement up and down. The views are truly magnificent and if you're a... More

As much as I love the Red Square/Stadthuys and A Famosa because both landmarks play a very important role in Malaysian history, the trip was made more memorable with going up the Taming Sari Tower, the first "gyro tower" or rotating tower in Malaysia. We went up the tower at night and it was unbelievably amazing. Imagine going up during... More
