Proclamation of Independence Memorial

What was once the Melaka Club now stands preserved as the Proclamation of Independence Memorial where the first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, read the historic document in February 1956. The building was constructed in 1912 and now houses exhibits of the country's struggle for independence in the form of relics, manuscripts, videotapes, films, and slides.

Maritime Museum

The museum was constructed after " Flor De La Mar", the Portuguese ship that sank off the coast of Melaka on its way to Portugal. With its hull laden with invaluable treasures seized from Melaka, the ship was doomed from existence had it not been for the efforts to revive its symbolic significance to Melaka's heritage. At the museum, visitors can get a closer look at Melaka from the famed Melaka Sultanate of the 14th Century to the periods of colonization by the Portuguese, Dutch, and British. There are exhibits of foreign ships that had once called at the Port of Melaka during the height of its maritime hegemony.

Pulau Besar

Pulau Besar (Big Island) is an exotic tropical island off historic Melaka. Long associated with fascinating legends and myths, it now has an added dimension of a throbbing holiday destination with the opening of the Pandanusa Island Resort. This island is one of the unspoiled corners of the globe and with its vast span of white sandy beaches and emerald green waters, it is ideal for swimming, fishing, snorkeling, and even jungle walks.

Bullock Cart Ride

Once a major means of transportation for the rich, the features that separate the bullock cart of Melaka from that of the other states are the pointed roofs in the shape of bull horns, the trappings, and colors.
