Merlimau Travel Guide, Malacca
Merlimau is a small town near the coast in southeastern Malacca. Located on Federal Route 5, the old coastal road, Merlimau is on the road between Malacca Town and Muar. Apart from Tun Teja's Mausoleum, the town has nothing much of interest to tourists. There are some mangrove swamps at the estuary of the Merlimau river, but no large-scale effort to tap it as yet.
