Melaka is a popular short holiday destination for many Malaysians as its not very far from the Klang Valley and within easy driving distance. Melaka also has many family friendly destinations which are highly educational for children as well as many delicious delicacies not found anywhere.
However, since many people usually have short sojourns in Melaka, it is important to spend as much time as possible sight seeing and experiencing new things. If you and your family are afraid that the crowds in Melaka’s tourism district and worried that it will slow you down or just want to avoid the hassle, there are some other alternatives that are slightly further from the city centre which are equally as fun.
For example, there is the new shopping mall called The Shore located along the Melaka river and featuring some of the trendiest stores with the best brands in town.
Not far from The Shore on the banks of the Melaka river is a newly build tourist attraction called Melaka Alive, which has a stage shaped like a ship called Bahtera Merdeka, where plays from Melaka’s history are staged regularly.
Tip: Get tickets to Bahtera Merdeka’s Open Day via myiMart play to watch plays and enjoy the other themed attractions.
Another family friendly attraction would be Bayou Lagoon Park Resort, which is a water theme park near Bukit Katil. Entry tickets are extremely affordable at only RM11 with this deal from Groupon. Enjoy splash pools, water slides and more. There’s also a man-made tropical beach and sunbathing shades.
If you’re more keen on a drier experience, Bayou Square has a MAGIC Art Museum where you can perform ‘stunts’ and interact with 3D paintings . Get your tickets from myiMart for their Open Day and start taking all those interesting pictures and creating fun memories with your loved ones and friends.
If you’re worrying about accommodation, look no further as you can stay within walking distance to these attractions at the Bayou Lagoon Park Resort hotel.
