- Harmony Street: a street representing the many faiths of Malaysia (a Buddhist temple, Hindu temple, and Mosque – only had time for the Buddhist temple and Mosque unfortunately!)
- Cheng Hoon Teng: the Buddhist temple was built in 1645 and is the oldest functioning temple in Malaysia (for more info, go here).
- Kampung Kling Mosque: originally built in 1748 in wood, and rebuilt in 1872 in brick. Everyone is allowed in, and there are some very nice ladies who will give you a tour. For more history, go here.
- If you’re in the area, go check out tourist favourite: The Orangutan House, they’ve got some items you might like to bring back as a souvenir.
- Take a stroll along Melaka river.
- There are lots of different little cafes, shops and food carts, if you need a break from the heat.
- Go to a sea-side restaurant.
