Melaka Historic City

The port of Malacca was at one time amongst the most significant settlements in the region.

Yet in comparatively modern times Malacca has regained some of its lost prestige as it has become a popular holiday destination because of its numerous historical and cultural attractions. The city is also the place of origin of the distinctive Nyonya style of cuisine. Many visitors arrive in Malacca to obtain an authentic insight into the cultural heritage of Malaysia.


Redang Island
