Taman Buaya Melaka is one of the largest crocodile farm in the country. This farm has over 200 crocodiles of various species including the Siamese, African Dwarf, Humpback and Indian Marsh. My visit was part of my journey to widen my exposure to Melaka tourism.
Taman Buaya Melaka (Malacca Crocodile Farm)
The crocodile farm is located just opposite the Zoo Melaka and easily found along the road from Ayer Keroh toll to the town. Car park should be free but very packed with cars especially during the weekend. I parked rather far away at 11.00am.
Finally, I managed to arrange my time to visit the farm since 18 years ago … how long is that you know? I was almost forgotten how it was look like in the past. Over the time, the crocodile farm had renovated into modern and achieves the biggest crocodile farm in the country.
Among many places I went to, Melaka still offers me the best revisiting destination. I’ve done many places in daylight, it’s time to move to night time. That’s what I called Melaka Night View.
Melaka Night View @ Befallen Light of the City
Due to I’m not really into night explorer of the street, there will be no review about any happening elsewhere in Melaka. Instead, I’ll be presenting a series of photographs taken at night, especially the Melaka River.
My short weekend in Melaka normally more happening during daylight, but caught unaware of such a beautiful sight at night. In fact, places like Melaka River Cruise could offer a lot of dancing lights when you follow along the way from river side.
Let’s the picture do the talking now.
My previous visits with Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam (a.k.a Taman Pertanian Malaysia) were about SkyTrek and cycling activities. In fact, many place yet to be discovered with only half day here.
18 Dec 2010 | Cactus Garden @ Bukit Cahaya
Normally, you guys will associate this place with cycling but other than cycling, there are much more hardcore activities going on here such as paintball, skytrek and etc.
If you’re too lazy to walk along the way, just rent a bicycle for RM5 for first hour, subsequent RM1 per hour. Would you rather move on the wheel?
I’ve been invited for this for fun cycling. But I won’t be here for just cycling because I simply love to explore. Explore new place is a BIG must. I recalled a place where the cactus plant resides. Yea, it’s CACTUS GARDEN.
To go here, just follow the signboard available there, it’s same route with SkyTrek direction and further until the end.
FGS Dong Zen Temple CNY Lantern & Flora Festival 2011 is a place where many visitors would flock during CNY period. This year seems to be slowing down compare to last year. However, it didn’t deterred my decision to visit this place annually for 4th years.
Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zhen Temple
6 Feb 2011 | CNY Lantern & Flora Festival
FGS Dong Zen definitely not an anonymous place for many Malaysian during Chinese New Year. Due to lack of promotion effort from media, the crowd was less than expected. Many choose to come here for sight-seeing, photography, family outing or even dating.
Once a year decoration effort has put FGS Dong Zen into main attraction to whole Malaysian. No doubt, the decoration was real unique each year and too hard to resist from taking photography for memories.
Located at Jenjarom, you can reach this place from KESAS highway, Banting Klang exit. If you come from Bukit Jalil, you need to fork out RM6.60 toll fees in total. From the exit, you just follow the signboard for about 15km distance to the destination.
Rock Temple, not many known its name but when I mentioned located in Broga Town, many would give a sign of memory recovery. It’s attracted a lot of people from local and Singapore for its popular 4D lottery luck.
Rock Temple @ Broga Town
Visitors can make offerings or just walk around enjoying the views and many statues of Chinese Zodiacs, Monkey King, Grandpa fisher and local fruits.
Winding on same route to Broga Hill, known by most hikers, it’s located at far end of the road.
Along the way you will pass by Rabbit Fun land on the left hand side and you will than reach the small little town. After the town, you will pass by a few seafood restaurants. Finally, you will reach a dead end where the temple is located.
