Apart from historical sights within the town of Melaka, the state of Melaka has much to offer to families and corporate groups. The A' Famosa Resort and Theme Park has a Golf Course, a Water World, a Cowboy Town, a Mini Safari. It also organises light shows and parades on special occasions (Christmas, New Year, Chinese New Year). The resort is popular with Singaporeans and locals - probably because it is convenient drive that takes only 2.5 hours on the (PLUS) North-South Highway from either KL or Singapore. It is also popular with locals from Negeri Sembilan and Johor who make a day-trip to the Water World Theme Park and Animal Safari. Quite a number of Malaysians and Singaporeans also own vacation apartments here. Usually, the dads will come here for a game of golf, while mum and kids enjoy the water park or animal safari.
The picture shows my kids playing at the Arabian Nights pool within the A Famosa Water Theme park. We had visited on a Friday (non-school holiday period) and it was practically deserted. We also stayed overnight at the bungalow and apartments here as we had visited this resort more than once.
Like any good cowboy town worth its salt, the Cowboy Town at A' Famosa Resort comes to life at night. There are pubs and karaoke joints where live music is played and at 10 pm, a cowboy and Indian show for the kids. If you're tired from a hard day at the golf course, you can have foot reflexology or a massage here too! (not sure if the masseuse here dress up as cow gals or as saloon girls...you check it out and let me know!) Some of the outlets stay open till 1.00 am, which is great for those who can't sleep on an empty stomach.
- Pros:Something for the whole family.
- In a nutshell:History, Golf, Theme Park, Local delicacies!
