    Actually this mosque is not actually floating, but because of its location on the seafront and supported by several pillars that make this mosque look like it is floating. The mosque is very clean and well maintained. In this mosque there is a kind of ATM that if we put our money in, we will get souvenirs from this mosque. Another interesting point is the pile of granite that lies along the beach area of ​​the mosque.

    Beautifully kept Baba & Nyonya house from the Chan family. I would recommend all to visit and be immersed in their history. It’s amazing how well they’ve retained the home. We went before midday and didn’t have a tour guide - so maybe check when they provide guided tours as I feel this would’ve elevated the experience.

    I am not a politician but if any good they do we need to support and recognize. This is another landmark and tourist destination that Tun Ali Rustam is working on. Although it is simple but unique because the revolving part will go down and bring You up to the top of the tower. It is perfect to take the children around in space while seeing the beauty of Badaraya Melaka. Something exciting for the kids.

    This a a very beautiful place to have a stroll. it is litted up at night. There are many beautiful bridges and murals on the old buildings. The whole stretch takes about 1.5 hours each way. it is safe and secure.

    Was really amazed to know the church is neaely 400 plus years old and Saint Francus Xavier had himself visited here and was rested forvsome months before moving to Goa. To my opinion this could have been better restored aa I could see the walls had been scribbled. Small piece of history that too my opiniom should not be missed in your trip

    This is an interesting temple to visit, especially around the Chinese New Year. A very colourful interior with lots of decorations. This is a fully function temple, so make sure you respect the users.

    Second visit to Malacca and absolutely love the jonker area adjoining tobthe church. The river and its adjoining are has its beauty to offer both day and night. Night the river is lit up with lights and boats also have ssome colourful lights fitted. You may try to walk on the paved way to reach the mouth of the rivervas well.

    Swarming with visitors and vendors and trishaws, but this is pretty much obligatory for visitors. It's also something you'll pass on the way to pretty much anything on the east side of the river, so it will be part of the "attractions circuit" in any case.

    Advance reading-up on the history of Melaka will give you a deeper experience when you see this, the Stadhuys, St Paul's Hill, and other nearby spots.

    Should you do it?

    Well, you can't leave Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower, so....."no" is not a possible answer!

    This locatikn is more popularly known as the Dutch Squate. Visited the place pre-covid. Peddlers line the perimeter of the building with souvenirs and snacks. Worth exploring but more for the snacks.

    From here, you will notice that other attractions like Jonker Street, Maritime museum, Kite museum are within reach.

    The best of both worlds in one single place. You have the opportunity to learn a lot about doggies and how to practice Ketogenic diet.

    Truly enjoyable and fruitful lesson : )

    We took a detour to visit this place as we missed it the last time.

    We were shown around by the owner, Haji Ibrahim who is the descendent of the founder of this village. Lots of cool antiques to see. Entrance is free but donations are welcomed for the upkeep of the house.

    We arrived in Malacca in the afternoon. As our hotel room wasn't ready, we walked around and ended up at the Shore Oceanarium and decided to give it a go. As many have observed, it is not as big as Aquaria but overall it is a good indoor attraction. We enjoyed strolling from one exhibit to another. Quite a good variety of species. Places to sit for the elderly. No toilets though. The touch pool was out of bounds as they were adhering to Covid-19 SOP. With each ticket, we were given a keychain (Nemo keychain) and 3D glasses for the one of the video presentations inside.
