What is your last day in a country like? When I was in Malaysia on the last day, I went to Malacca City. Did you know that Malacca is a UNESCO World Heritage Site? It’s a world heritage city. I didn’t find much history in the city, but everything you see is very real.
From Kuala Lumpur, you have to go to TBS (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan) first if you want to go to Malacca. From TBS (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan) just take the bus for RM 11.00, from Mayang Sari, Terminal Bersepadu Selatan – MELAKA Sentral. Then from Melaka Central to Christ Church Malacca. Take the express bus number 17 for around RM 2. This trip is a bit long for me, but this is how I make it to the city I want.
Arriving at Christ Church Malacca, I admired this beautiful building in red color. This church is also the oldest church in Malaysia. The most beautiful thing is the style of Dutch colonial architecture with wooden beams cut from a tree. Local laterite blocks are lined with plaster from China and the floors are lined with granite blocks. This is an important place when you come to Malacca. From there you can see Queen Victoria’s Fountain.
On our way, is the road to Jonker Walk in Chinatown Melaka. That’s a pity because when I was there, I didn’t go to Baba and Madame’s house, because I didn’t have time to walk further, as we had to go back to Jakarta the next morning. So from Jonker Walk, I walked along the Malacca River, and you should know that there is a line clear restaurant there – Kampung Jawa, Melaka. It’s really delicious.
On the way, I came to Melaka 3D Street Art. I was very excited to see street art there. Many tourists were here to take photos and on the way, I also found a cafe that I thought was very famous for its coffee here. It’s a shame that I don’t really like coffee, but we still bought some for my friend who likes coffee in Malacca. When I was walking 3D street art in Melaka, we saw a singer performing. This makes my memories of Malacca even more colorful.
For the moment, I ended the trip and returned to Kuala Lumpur. It was very exhausting. I remember arriving at sunset and being very tired. When I arrived at the hotel, we went to Petaling Street Market – a very cheap mall from another market. I bought some souvenirs for my family and friends. I was there for a very short time because my legs were already sore from walking in Malacca 😛 My friends were also very tired, but some shopping we had to endure.
The next day we left early for the airport using a Grab. Buses or trains that leave at 6 am are a bit more expensive as far as I remember. It cost us RM80 to take the Grab – so about RM27 per person. All I can say now is goodbye to Malaysia. My experience in Malaysia is very memorable and also meaningful.
