Just a quick walk up the road takes you to an area with a different feel to it. Fort Cornwallis sits on the sea and is in a neighborhood of gran old buildings. It's also next to the famous Queen Victoria Jubilee Clock Tower, so it's easy to see both in one stop. Fort Cornwallis was built in the late 1700's by the British.

At only 2 MYR to enter, it's a steal. Parts are undergoing restoration, but what's there is good. Lots of artifacts, cannons, and historical places of interest are easy to walk around and see. The fort is filled with many firsts and largests in Malaysia. Sufficed to say, it's one photo opp after another! Not everywhere is paved, though, so be wary of slippery spots as you make your way around!
