So what did you do during the Hari Raya and Merdeka Day break? I was at Malacca for a short trip. I stayed in Malacca for during my university days. Back then, Malacca wasn’t made a World Heritage place yet. But today, thanks to it’s new status as one of the World Heritage place, Malacca has undergone many changes. This in turn, leads to the opening of many new touristy spots. One of them is the opening of the Under Water World / Coral Wonderland at Dataran Pahlawan.
If you love corals, this is the place to be. The corals comes in many shapes and sizes. It was so beautiful to watch and to be photographed at.
The cutest sea creature here is their Chocolate Chip Starfish. Based on it’s appearance, I can see why it is called the chocolate chip starfish.
This coral is one of the most photogenic coral. Look how beautiful they are.
A sea crab eating a Horseshoe crab.
A fierce looking Porcupine Fish. Porcupine fish has really beautiful blue eyes.
Purple Fire Goby.
If you like Red Snapper this is how it looks like.
The entrance fee for an adult is RM30 per person. There was a discount of RM5 for their soft opening. So if you are interested in visiting the Coral Wonderland, Malacca, get yourself to Dataran Pahlawan now.
Oh did I mention that you get to touch some of the sea creatures here? Lobster, sharks, starfishes and sea cucumbers are some of the sea creatures that you may touch and photographed with.
