Malacca or Melaka in Malaysia was our favorite place. It is romantic city filled with history and interesting things to see, a mix of European and Asian architecture style.

Make sure to go on a boat cruise along the river at night after 7:30pm to see the city filled with colours.

Be there during the week-end or just before Friday to experience the famous night market.

Visit the church square (red buildings), go to the top of St Paul’s church, learn all about the Gallery Kota Melaka (free entrance) and the Cheng’s Ho cultural museum (watch their short history movie to understand the connection with Malacca).

There are all kinds of museum in this town and people are so nice! the friendliest and most welcoming we have found so far in Malaysia.

It is a relaxing city for couples or family with kids to spend a couple of days enjoying your vacation.

I totally recommend visiting this city.

Spend 3 days 2 nights in Melaka. It's just a small city, maybe 1 night is just enough for touring. The highly recommend tourist point is Jonker Street, the white sand dunes in Pantai Klebang, and the old heritage building. Malacca is also famous for foods such as the famous chicken rice balls, Nyonya dishes, dodol, gula Melaka, etc. It was quite crowded when I visited because it was on school holidays.

We are travelling from Kuala Lumpur and on our way stop in Pink Mosque (Putra Mosque) located near the scenic Putrajaya Lake and of the famous landmark in Putrajaya and one of the most modern mosques in the world.

Malacca is the oldest Malaysian City that is rich heritage & perfect spot for sights seeing. We found Jonker street fascinating. It is the centre street of Chinatown, loads shops, crafts outlets & restaurant. They also have night market on Friday & Saturday.

Apart from rich history, Malacca is also known for foodie – local people or Malaysian from other places & tourists came to have the famous/best chicken rice balls.

It is a must visit street if you go to Malacca, you can see all kinds of shops, restaurants, souvenirs, maybe one or two temples. It is hot to walk in the days but in the night, it is a nice place to hangout. There are a few drinking bars, cheap yet comfortable. There is a hardrock cafe in front of Jonker Street.

A very professionally guided tour by Angel. Thankyou, you were so full of interesting pieces of information about the family and culture. A great insight to the more traditional side of Melakan life.

A real gem if you’re interested history,furniture and design.
Lots of rooms filled with quality pieces of furniture etc.
A bonus for us today was that we met a member of the family who own the house.
This charming couple made us most welcome and supplied food and drinks free of charge( you don’t get that at the V and A in London)
