Malacca Tour by car - Limbongan to Melaka Raya
Car DashCam Video of Malacca - Limbongan to Melaka Raya
As you drive you'd see places that have now become a kind of landmarks. Starbucks Limbongan and McDonald are right at the place where I switch on the camera.
Kota Laksamana and Shahbundar
Moving further I pass by the area of Kota Laksamana and Shahbundar. You can see Marvelux Hotel and Swan Garden Hotel there. Swan Garden Hotel is now partly occupied by the Bank of China. Popular Chinese restaurant Bei Zhan is also visible as you cross the traffic signal.
Malacca International Ferry Terminal View
As you drive further and cross over the bridge of the river Malacca, you can see the Malacca International Ferry Terminal. It's the isthmus of the river Malacca as it flows into the Straits of Malacca.
As soon as you cross the bridge, you can see tall Holiday Inn hotel and Mahkota Hotel. You can also see the Mahkota Medical Center, where a lot of Indonesian patients come for treatment.
Taman Melaka RayaThen starts the Taman Melaka Raya. After crossing the condominium, Malacca Club you can see a big building with the name Hatten Place. Doubletree by Hilton is in the Hattens Place.
Then, as you pass through the Taman Melaka Raya's commercial area, you'd see many bank branches. These include RHB Bank, Hong Leong Bank, and Public Bank. CIMB Bank is also on this road but nearer to its another end. Lots of shops and some wellness and Thai massage centers are located here.
Mahkota Parade and Mahkota Medical CenterWe then drive to the back side of Mahkota Parade to go to its front and as soon as you come out of Plaza Mahkota, you can see the viewing tower known as Menara Taming Sari. You can buy tickets to go up to Menara Taming Sari to have a birds-eye view of Malacca.
Dataran Pahlawan Melaka MegamallNext, you'd cross Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall shopping center, Imperial Heritage Hotel, Hotel Equatorial, Melaka High School and then reach the historical part of Melaka.
Clock Tower, Stadthuys and Christ ChurchYou would be crossing through red buildings. There you can see Clock Tower, Queen Victoria Fountain, Stadthuys, Christ Church, and Melaka Zero Mile signage. Famous Jonker Walk is on right from here but we don't drive there today. Further up is the Quayside Hotel and a replica of the ship, Flor de la Mar, which belonged to Portuguese invader Alphonso de Albuquerque.
That's all in this video. We then enter the same road we drove earlier to return back to the point from where we started.
Usually, visitors don't go to some areas in the video. So if you visit Malacca but missed some places, just watch this video. Or if you are planning to visit Malacca, do watch this before you visit. It will help you decide where to go and what to do in Malacca.

The story behind the Rambler Diary
My blog is not niche-specific; instead, I write about my daily observations. I publish blogs under a variety of diverse titles, themes, specialties, and general topics. However, I was dissatisfied with the names I gave my blogs, as they are narrow and particular. My observations about life were numerous. Theme and niche blogs pushed me to write only about specialized subjects. As a result, I considered different names and this one came up and it began. It enables me to write about whatever I choose. Most of the time, it's about the places I visit, the things I see, the things I observe, and the things I write about. Why? Because such insights may be beneficial to others who read this blog article. Subscribe to this blog and its related YouTube channel. Subscribe RamblersDiary
