Malacca: Malacca Straits Mosque / Masjid Selat Melaka – Just went to Malacca, the historical city of Malaysia over the weekend for a short trip with my classmate and checked out this new place that I’ve not visited before – the Malacca Straits Mosque, also known as the floating mosque for the locals.
It’s located on a man-made island of Pulau Melaka. Surprisingly, I didn’t see it in the top ten list of ‘todo in Malacca’ in some travel website. I actually came across it from blogs when I was searching for ‘Photography Malacca’ and the image result came top for it.
And so, I went to search for it on my little trip to Malacca last weekend. It’s pretty easy to find as Malacca is so small. Road direction signage does well in Malacca on guiding people to the correct destination. Just follow the sign to ‘Pulau Melaka’ or ‘Masjid Selat Melaka’. =)

Well, it’s just a mosque, built on the sea, over looking the Straits Of Malacca. You can get some good sunset shot here and the mosque will look even prettier at night when the lights are up.
The Pulau Melaka basically has nothing much, just the mosque is interesting and that’s all. It’s pretty quiet on other part of it and many imcomplete construction project, don’t know why.

It’s fun checking out new places in Malacca. Perhaps I should get a tripod and wait for sunset next time. =D
