Day Trip to Melaka

During the school holidays we went to Melaka. The kids wanted to go to Genting but we said No, we go to Melaka because you have not been there before. In the end, they gave a thumbs up for Melaka. :) Why? Because we went on the Melaka River Cruise, rode in a colourful Melaka Trishaw, explored a portugese ship in the Melaka Maritime Museum and sat in the Menara Taming Sari, the first revolving Gyro Tower in Malaysia (I didn't know that, not till I wrote this post. Haha.). All new experiences for them which they enjoyed. We left KL at 8am and arrived at 10am.

Traffic was heavy in Melaka.....


But we managed to find our way to the A Famosa Fort in Melaka......


Then, we climbed up to the St Paul Hill Church from 400 years ago...


There, we had a bird's eye view of the Eye on Malaysia..... and the Menara Taming Sari....


Later on we stopped by the Proclamation of Independance Memorial.....


This was followed by a Melaka River Cruise.......


We sat on one of these boats for our boat tour of Melaka.....


By then, it was almost lunchtime and the queue for lunch spread to the road side!


What's everyone queing up for? Chicken Rice Balls of course.


We had some too. I was so hungry I forgot to take a photo till halfway through the meal.......


We did not join that queue but had our Chicken Rice Balls at Hoe Kee at Jonker Walk instead.....



After lunch we went to Menara Taming Sari for a ride. There was a long queue. We had to wait for 3 rounds before our turn. From the revolving tower, we took a photo of the portugese ship that was part of the Melaka Maritime Museum which we visited right after our tower ride.

 

We finally left Melaka at 4pm, arriving home at 6pm, just in time for dinner. A great day trip! Just nice for a family with young kids. (preschoolers and above). These Melaka attractions are nice and enjoyable for the kids. The colourful Melaka trishaw ride was fun for the kids too. Some of the trishaw riders even double up as tourist guides, taking you to various attractions, talking about them and taking photos for you and your family.
