With dozens of museums, temples and historic sites there is lots to see and do in Melaka.

While museums like The Stadthuys are Maritime Museum certainly worth your time, other museums focusing on a very narrow subject don't have the same mass appeal.

As Melaka is very popular with repeat visitors from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, new attractions are regularly being added to keep visitors coming back for more.  For example, a new "Sound and Lights" show is scheduled for completion.

Don't hold your breath, though.
