It’s definitely the place to go to absorb the city’s heritage, and experience some its great shopping, dining and nightlife offerings. The Jonker Street is lively and lined with museums (such as the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum), souvenir shops, antique warehouses, and art galleries, together with a number of happening bars and specialty stores.

Even though the A’Famosa Resort in Alor Gajah might take 45-minute to drive from the Malacca city centre, but it is well worth the trip if you’re looking for a fun family getaway. The resort consists of a sprawling water park, an animal safari and an impressive ‘cowboy town’, featuring spectacular Red Indian shows and fireworks every night, together with on-site accommodations.

Home to over 300 species of flora and fauna, the Botanical Garden is a perfect spot to enjoy a scenic morning walk, a healthy jog or a bike ride through its pathways. And when you’re done, try visiting the Book Village located right in the heart of the park.
