Malacca City (Melaka)


One of the most visited destinations for local and tourist!

The state of Melaka or Malacca in Malaysia is the cradle of the once-famous Melaka Sultanate and now a famed UNESCO Heritage town. Melaka is the birthplace of Malay civilization. Its long history has seen the rise and fall of the Portuguese, the Dutch, and the British as they conquered the place, leaving long-standing structures and cultural influences that are still alive and visible. You will find some of the best cuisines in Malaysia, well-preserved historical landmarks, and unique cafes that make cafe-hopping awesome again. There are many heritage landmarks, colonial buildings, temples, and old architecture awaiting you to discover in Malacca (Melaka). Find your ways starting from narrow lanes peppered with colourful Baba-Nyonya houses to a Plaza fringed by red-painted dutch brick buildings, temples to commanding mosque and from hand-crafted intricate souvenirs to cafes.  Here’s some info that will help you with Malacca City (Melaka) from what things you can do to what to eat. 

The city I visited more than 4 times a year. Why? The city has the best Asam Laksa! Love the cafe near the river.
