Have you been in Malacca recently? Where do you visit during your trip to Malacca? Do you know that Malacca now got new attractions that you must visit? They called this ‘Melaka Alive‘
It’s been while My family and I also have not traveled to Malacca. A day trip to Malacca from Kuala Lumpur isn’t far since it’s only take about 1 hour and 30 minutes drive.
A new site-specific theatre show is drawing tourists to the old city of Melaka while celebrating the state’s rich and diverse history.
Set in and amongst the glorious heritage buildings of UNESCO Heritage Melaka, Melaka Alive tells the rich 600 year-old story of the state through an innovative and interactive concept theatre that leads the audience through the various stages of Melaka’s evolution, from the arrival of Parameswara, through the periods of Portuguese and Dutch colonization and finally to current day Melaka, where many cultures blend seamlessly in a true modern melting pot.

Told through the eyes of revered sailor Panglima Awang, said by many to be the first man to circumnavigate the world, the show takes place on a to-scale reconstruction of the famed Bahtera Merdeka ship and features state-of-the-art projection and sound techniques that bring Melaka’s history to life in a thrilling 30 minute spectacle, making it a perfect attraction for families.
Meanwhile, attraction owner Nuevo Attraction & Destination Sdn. Bhd. has recently opened The Pirate Adventure, an immersive indoor attraction that promises to engage all five senses.
