Continuation of Malaysia Day 1 (Genting Highlands and Petronas Tour)
So, for Day 2, we decided to headoff to one of the famous Malaysian destinations- Malacca. Malacca is around 2 hours from Kuala Lumpur and is tagged as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other reasons why you should go here is to a rich historical and cultural trip. After visiting the place, I can say that it’s pretty much a fusion of Vigan and Intramuros here in the Philippines. I’m recommending you to try it out as well.
HOW TO GO TO MALACCA FROM KUALA LUMPUR
Going to Malacca independently is easy. First, you need to take the LRT and go down at Bandar Tasik Selatan Station. From here, you will see the big Bersepadu Selatan Bus Station. Just buy tickets to Malacca Sentral (price is 9 RM). By the way, just to share, Malacca buses are totally different from the provincial bound buses here in Manila. It offers a lot of space for passengers up to a point where you can extend your feet since the next seat is about 2 slots from you.
The whole travel time is 2 hours up to Malacca Sentral. From here, you will take a bus again (2 RM) to Melaka City Proper., for around 15-30 minutes. Finally, after around 2.5 hours of sitting and chatting and eating, we arrived in Melaka!
WELCOME TO MALACCA
At first glance, Malacca is well represented by Red Christ Church and a lot of vendors and trishaw outside.
Here are our activities in Malacca
#1 Photowalk in Jonker Street
Jonker Street is a street where you can find most of the restaurants, shops, souvenir stores, and temples. It gets slightly crowded during lunchtime as lines in the well-famed chicken rice ball and cendol restaurants get long. Our photowalk here is just perfect- you can capture lots of candid moments in the faces of people, still images of statues and Melaka products, and of course, food shots of the sidewalk vendors! Overall, I love Melaka because of Jonker street. It just brings me back to a homey feeling of a province plus a busy market. Prices of the products in Jonker are not really high (unlike other tourist destinations) so you can go shopping and foodtripping as much as you want. Just a reminder, please bring umbrella or cap as Melaka is a pretty hot/sunny destination.
#2 Take a rest in the Malacca river
Malacca river is just beside the Christ Church Continue Reading
