  • The Museum is worth a visit if you're interested in the history of that time. Had himself previously in BS know that Zheng He's attracted to its humanity and travelled to Malacca during the visit fun ♪ I think has been comparatively easy to find travellers is understandable to people who know about Zheng He's first exhibition. Visitors are still Chinese people. Conveniently located Central tourist spot, so if you have time visit is good enough ★
