More Tourist Attractions to look forward to!

19 April. (New Straits Times) -
The state government of Malacca intends to rebuild the ‘historic’ Malacca, that of the 15th century which is regarded as the golden age of Malacca Sultanate with plans for two replica-ships-cum-museums, a marina and a windmill. The Malacca Sultanate is considered the ’start’ of the Malay civilisation and was later in history occupied by the Portuguese and the Dutch.


Malacca ‘returns’ to the 15th century
Fifteenth-century Malacca was a busy marketplace, with trading ships from around the world sailing up and down its river.

Inspired by the past, the state government aims to replicate the busy surroundings of the river in the Malacca Sultanate era.
By April next year, tourists will be able to get a feel of this historic city’s heyday.
The first is Kapal Dendang Berahi, the ship in which Sultan Mansur Shah sailed to Majapahit to wed its princess, while the second, to be named Kapal Laksamana Cheng Ho, is a replica of the vessel used by the famous chinese armada admiral.
