Tour At Malaysia : A Famosa

A Famosa is the best place tour at Malaysia. A Famosa, or "The Famous" in Portuguese, is among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia. Once part of a mighty fortress, this tiny gate (called the Porta de Santiago) is all that is left of a once-mighty fortress.

In 1511, a Portuguese fleet arrived under the command of Alfonso de Albequerque. His forces attacked and successfully defeated the armies of the Sultanate. Moving quickly to consolidate his gains, Albequerque had the fortress built around a natural hill near the sea. The fort changed hands in 1641 when the Dutch successfully drove the Portuguese out of Melaka. The Dutch renovated the gate in 1670, which explains the logo "ANNO 1670" inscribed on the gate's arch. Then the fortress changed hands again in the early 19th century when the Dutch handed it over to the British to prevent it from falling into the hands of Napoleon's expansionist>

A Famosa is in melaka which is 2.5 hours drive from KLCC. it is an old historical fort built by the protuguese in 1511. it is a tourist attraction in melaka. if you like history and culture, then spend a day or two in melaka. there are many other tourist spots there. some people just buy a day tour package of melaka from kl. you leave in the morning and come back in the evening.

A Famosa is also a name of a resort in Melaka (A famosa resort). many people go there during weekends. when you stay there, you can go the water theme park, safari, animal shows and entertainment. it is very suitable for family outting. you can check the room and entrance prices in their website.

But you dont have to go to A Famosa resort to do your family outing. just go to Sunway Lagoon which is only 45 mins from klcc. there are huge wet and dry theme parks that kids and adult would enjoy. a day trip would be enough. Lastly enjoy the tour at Malaysia.
