Warisan Kereta Melayu Tambak Bugis

 Warisan Kereta Melayu Tambak Bugis Warisan Kereta Melayu Tambak Bugis

If you find glimmering trishaws overrated, then try riding on bullock carts! In the olden days, bullock carts were the main mode of transport. It is hard to experience the ride nowadays since almost anywhere else in Malaysia has abandoned it for motorised and mechanised vehicles.

To experience this bullock cart ride, travellers need to go to Telok Mas, which is half an hour away from Melaka city centre by car. The bullock cart riding experience would take around an hour and a half, bringing travellers to various parts of the kampung (village). You could also try donning traditional Malay attire, rubber-tapping and tasting traditional delicacies like tapai and ubi kayu. Talk about living like the locals!

Price: MYR40 per head (minimum 15 persons, prior reservation is needed)
Address: Warisan Kereta Melayu Tambak Bugis, KM 10, Jalan Tambak Bugis, Telok Mas, 75460 Melaka
Tel: +6 019 756 3341 / +6 012 765 3341



Perkampungan Hang Tuah

Literally means Hang Tuah Settlement, this place is interesting for you to learn about the aspects of the local Malay culture like the types of food, attire, architecture, legends and folklores. You can even get involved in a mock Malay traditional wedding at the Balai Adat (‘cultural pavilion’) either as guests or betrothed couple. Travellers also get to learn and play traditional games like congkak, chapteh and batu Seremban, as well as trying on traditional clothes.

Entrance Fee: MYR3 (adult), MYR2 (senior citizen) and MYR1 (children)
Operating Hour: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Monday – Sunday)
