Malaysia has friendly tourist spots for elderly travelers. Most of them are in Kuala Lumpur.
Tourist attractions that are friendly to the elderly are in buildings that have become Malaysian icons or tourist objects that were deliberately built with a very Malaysian feel.
Tourist attractions in Malaysia that are friendly to the elderly include:
1. Petronas Towers
The charm of the towering Petronas twin towers attracts me when traveling with my family. The place is easy to reach, so taking pictures there is a sign that we are following Kuala Lumpur.
The Petronas Towers have malls and cinemas, so you can shop, watch movies and eat at the same time. However, taking pictures against the backdrop of the quiet Petronas is tricky because quite a lot of tourists come to this area.
If a traveler wants to climb to the top of the Petronas Towers, we recommend that travelers come in the morning. Because, if a traveler comes during the day it is not possible, because there are so many queues every day.
2. Batu Caves
Batu Caves is also one of the favorite destinations for tourists to Malaysia. The distinctive features that make it attractive are the tall statue of a Hindu god at the entrance, a steep staircase of 272 steps, three caves, and lots of monkeys roaming around in and near the caves.
Transportation to this place is quite easy, a traveler can buy a KTM Komuter Line ticket at KL Sentral. Travel time is approximately 40 minutes, with a one-way ticket price of RM 2.60.
The departure of the first train to Batu Caves starts at 06.56 while the last train from KL Sentral to Batu Caves is at 22.46. Only a difference of 30 minutes to 1 hour between one train and the next.
The Stadhuys building is a historic building located in the heart of Melaka City. This building is completely red and has a clock tower.
The Stadhuys building in Dutch means the city management board. This building which has high historical value is located next to Christ Church on Jalan Laksamana.
This building was built in 1650 as the official residence of the Dutch governor. The style of this building is similar in structure to the Dutch building.
This building also has historical records in the education sector. During the 19th century, the land of Malacca was still ruled by the British, there was an education section built in the Stadhuys yard, so it was also called the Malacca Free School. This school is usually attended by children from the upper middle class.
If a traveler wants to enjoy culinary specialties from Malaysia and is delicious, then in Melaka is the place, there are lots of souvenir shops here, the atmosphere in Indonesia is like a mix between the old city and Chinese village, there are lots of beautiful photo spots too.
