Melaka, known among locals as Negeri Bersejarah or Malacca is the third smallest state in Malaysia. It is located on the Straits of Malacca south of the Malay Peninsula.
Malacca stands out as being the place filled with the history of Malaysia. Heritage buildings, colonial structures and ancient landmarks populate this beautiful city. Malaysian history’s roots were planted right here as the colonial forces entered the country through Melaka, shaping Malaysia into its existing political and economic system.
Malacca is assured to hypnotise you with the cultural experience of a lifetime. While the rest of Malaysia is rushing towards civilisation, the seaside city of Malacca acts as guardian protecting the delicate traditionality and deep rooted history of the country. Alluring little houses with sloping rooftops overlooking the water is probably one of the most wonderful man made sights you will see.
