Whenever I have the time and means, I would love nothing more than to drive down to visit Melaka which I still have lots more of its historical places to visit and carry out some photography.
The Melaka State Government should capitalize on Melaka's heritage and open up new areas especially in event management.
The authorities can re-enact the historic Melaka Sultanate's glorious era by allowing Malay theatrical groups to stage plays at the Melaka Sultanate Museum featuring the times of Sultan Mansor Shah receiving foreign traders at his palace.
Instead of the RM2 entrance ticket fee, charge RM10 a head. That will cover the costs of engaging the theatrical group and generate more income for the state government!
Learn from other countries such as the United States of America, who regularly stage the re-enactment of their Civil War. Complete with actors and volunteers who dress up as Confederate and Republican soldiers! They are a huge tourist attraction. They generate lots of tourist dollars for the state.
Melaka can surely find willing theatrical groups who can dress up as the Sultanate of Melaka warriors, Portuguese soldiers, Indian Gujerati merchants, Chinese traders, etc.
If those in charge of Melaka wanna find out more, they are welcome to contact me. I'll be more than happy to cooperate on this money making program.
Where there's a will, surely there'll be a way!
In the meantime, come and see what I managed to capture of the sights and scenes during my unplanned day trip over there in Melaka recently.
Along the Melaka River.
The weather was still hazy when I was visitiing Melaka so that stopped me from staying out too long.
Insya Allah if the situation permits, I'd return once more to Melaka and take more photos to be shared here with you, my readers.
Till then, here's wishing you all the best in Iman, health and wealth!
