29.8.11 - Taman Botanikal Melaka

In the morning, we went to Taman Botanikal Melaka in Ayer Keroh, Melaka. It was formerly called Hutan Rekreasi Ayer Keroh (Air Keroh Recreational Forest).

There was an aquarium of large fishes behind this waterfall.

It was a nice stroll into the forest.

Only the facade of this Muzium Perhutanan looks nice. When we walked inside, it felt as though it were a ghost town. There weren't anyone there and the tables and chairs in the office looked old and abandoned. I wonder if it's still being used, as they seemed to be covered in dust. The rubbish bin was overturned and rubbish strewn on the floor. We quickly left the area.

And went next door to a more modern building....the Book Village (Kampung Buku). To our disappointment, it was closed, as it was a Monday. It didn't seem to house many books, but there were some on sale. 

So, we sat outside the building and had some biscuits...and then, off to the playground opposite.

After that, we walked over to the story garden, which had statues erected to depict popular children's stories. It had rained early in the morning before we arrived and the weather was cool in the area. However, the mosquitoes were ferocious with several buzzing around us, so we couldn't spend long in the place.
