Great views over Melacca

The ride to the top only takes a minute or so and then you rotate around several times to take in a 360 degree view of Melacca. Think it goes about 110metres in the air. Great... read more

The ride to the top only takes a minute or so and then you rotate around several times to take in a 360 degree view of Melacca. Think it goes about 110metres in the air. Great views and gives a good overview of the place. Really cheap ( 23 ringit or about$7 Aus ) and I thought well worth the... More

Had a chance to finally board the menara taming... and I didn't regret the experience up there. The view from the top offers an amazing landscape on Melaka town. The time spent up there is good enough for anyone to snap all pictures from above.

It cost quite cheap to actually head up there. The view is nice and a good spot to take panorama shot as it spins around at a steady pace. It's also aircon and they do provide you with a bottle of mineral water as a small perk. Pictures can be bought after the ride for a small fee. Just get... More

Located 10min walking from the Red Square, the menara was air-conditioned. Ticket counter was located inside the building at the base and the queue lines are located outside at the base of the menara. It was quite expensive at RM$23 per adult in my opinion. Unless you have ample time in Malacca, I would not recommend.

I felt this amusement was quite necessary when I first came to town. It offers a perfect perspective of the layout of the old town. They supply a bottle of water and it is air conditioned. As it rotates you see exactly what might interest you during your stay. You don't see everything but it's a great start. I was... More

It is a MUST when you go to a place that you are not familiar with, to get an overall view of the state.. Since Malacca had been recognized by UNESCO as Historical Building Heritage, it is a must to view the beautiful surrounding especially during sunset.
