cowboy town, a famosa resort

Melaka is a worth destination to visit for families. One of the main attractions that I would like to introduce when you are in Melaka is the famous A’Famosa Resort Animal Safari and its unique Cowboy Town.

Situated on a 1300-acre site in Alor Gajah, surrounded by rolling hills and a lush countryside of Melaka, A’Famosa is a getaway which will leave you totally refreshed and rejuvenated.

One of the best things about A’Famosa is its strategic location off the North-South Highway- just half an hour’s drive from historic Melaka city, 45 minutes from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and about an hour from Kuala Lumpur. The resort is also extremely popular with Singaporeans as it only takes two hours by road to go there from the Lion City. An alternative mode of travel is via rail, alighting at the TampinRailway Station which is just a 10-minute taxi ride away.

Hold tight, as you sit in the caged truck. The Animal Safari is about to begin. Melaka’s Animal Safari is the only safari park in Malaysia, where you can see wild animals like tigers, lions and sunbears closed-up in the open as the truck stop right next to them. Barbary sheep, deer, camels, zebras, giraffes and ostriches roam freely in the open. There are also elephant and bird shows to entertain you, to add to the adventure, you can enjoy elephant, camel and pony rides. At the walk through area you will see Tanzanian flamingos, black and white swans, Australian Bennett wallabies, North American raccoons and the Malaysian black and white tapirs. Don’t miss the dairy farm that house fluffy chicks, kittens, puppies and ducks.

Only in the evening, Melaka’s only Cowboy Town comes alive. There are food outlets serving local and western food, live bands and children’s park. At the open area features cowboys and Apaches in stunt acts and trick horse riding. For lasting memory, have your family photo taken at the Digital Photoshop Conner in Cowboy outfit or get your face painted. If you are tired, try treating yourself for a Thai body massage and foot reflexology. Cowboy Town shopping village offers a variety of arts & crafts as souvenirs for you to bring home. Also look out for the magnificent and stunning fireworks displays as it brighten the black sky.
