Things to do in Malacca

This is a Malacca travel video showcasing our favorite things to do along with what we consider to be the top attractions in Melaka, Malaysia.

We start off by showing you a clip of a time lapse sequence of the Malacca River where you’ll notice a tour boat speeding along.

Next we visit the bustling Jonker Street Walk (Jonker Street Night Market) to sample street food and do a little shopping. You’ll notice how hectic and busy it gets along this street packed with tourists and locals alike along Jalan Hang Jebat.

Afterwards we take you on a bicycle tour around the city where stop off at the church ruins. Our next activity is a night boat ride cruise along the Melacca River.

One of our favorite activities was taking a rickshaw tour around the city.

Feeling the heat we cool down with a delicious bowl of refreshing cendol.

We take time to visit the many temples located around Chinatown.

We satisfy our tastes buds by eating Peranakan cuisine which is also known as Baba Nyonya food including popiah, rojak and laksa.

Next we explore the Chinatown area of Melaka enjoying many of the historic crumbling colonial mansions.

After we go exploring and walking along the Melaka River enjoying the graffiti and murals we notice along the walls. We finish off with some time lapse sequences that includes shots of markets, the Dutch quarter and a few others spots.

Overall, these are the activities we recommend others check out when they’re touring around Malacca, Malaysia.

I love Malacca! I lived there for a month last year. I really can’t agree with you on the cendol – too many weird textures for me lol. But as for the popiah, rojak and laksa – all get a big thumbs up from me.

That’s really cool Julia!

I could see why the Cendol would not be appealing for some. I honestly don’t like the ABC version with the corn and Audrey is not in love with the beans…haha

Malacca is a great historic city in Malaysia. Looks great! Oh, I love the cendol and laksa.
