    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.

    Great way to spend your weekend to indulge in nostalgic vibes of olden times… walking down a bustling street with stalls on both sides and hawkers beckoning you to try their wares. If you are lucky you might even catch the coconut shake guys displaying their coconut tossing prowess.

    Me and my partner dined at one of the seafood stalls and the oysters there were really huge. Biggest oysters I’ve ate so far, very worth it. The fried oyster omelette though not so much

    I also snagged a mini handbag for rm30 and bought souvenirs for my relatives there (pineapple tarts, pumpkin noodles)

    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.

    Worth exploring if you are travelling to Melaka.

    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.

    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.

    Our family of 4 stayed at Double Tree Hilton Melaka and drove for about 30mins to reach Woof Station. The location is at a landed property with a huge garden for the 6 dogs to roam around. The dogs were able to come into the cafe/kitchen area with Aircon. The dogs were well-trained by the owners and understand many commands & can even shake hands with us! My boys had a fun-filled afternoon with all the doggies with different personalities! Owners (Fong and Sharine) were very friendly and we felt like we were chatting with our old friends. Will definitely come back again!

    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.
