Visit Melaka, Malaysia

Called the ‘Historical City’, Melaka is one of Malaysia’s most visited cities. It is rich in culture and history, drawing from influences of past players like the Portuguese and Dutch. This also translates into an exciting array of food to enjoy on any Melaka trip. The city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the oldest cities in the country. Melaka is also the celebrated centre of the Peranakan culture. On top of that, it has many ethnic enclaves like Little India and the Portuguese Settlement. Melaka is a charming compact city that remains a favourite with visitors seeking a little holiday time in Malaysia.

PLACES TO VISIT IN MELAKA

Red Square

The heritage area is the most famous part of the city, wrapping around Red Square - the most no.1 spot for tourists. Picturesque Red Square is marked with the iconic terracotta-red Stadhuys, clock tower and Christ Church Melaka. From here, it's easy to branch out to explore more Melaka attractions including St. Paul's Church, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple and Masjid Kampung Hulu. To get around, you could hop on one of the trishaws for a traditional-style tour of the city.

Jonker Walk aka Jalan Hang Jebat, is the bustling heart of Melaka's Chinatown with lots to eat and lots to buy. The Jonker Street Night Market is a must-visit on any Melaka trip. The market runs on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Here you'll find handicrafts, knick knacks, and Malaysian food favourites plus some specialties like watermelon handbag, quail eggs and of course Nyonya food including popiah. Hotels near Jonker Street are a good place to stay, close to attractions and easy to get around.

Melaka Wonderland Water Park is a new attraction that's quickly becoming a favourite for families enjoying a Melaka trip. The water park features tall slides, the Tornado Chaser that spins you around, a giant pool with waves and plenty of child-friendly activities for your anak-anak to splash around.

Food in Melaka

Not quite a place to visit, but makan has definitely got to be the best thing to do in Melaka! So much food, so little time. There are lots of cool hipster cafes in Melaka these days, so wander down obscure streets and take a break from the heat with a fancy serving of kopi, kuih kuih and Pandan pancakes. But don't miss out on the classics. Plot the best Melaka restaurants down on your itinerary so you can enjoy Satay Celup, Chicken Rice Balls, Eurasian Portuguese food and most importantly, Nyonya food. There's a good chance Buah Keluak, Cendol and Kueh Pie Tie will be the highlight of your trip.

Another historical attraction that marks the European footprint in Malaysia, is the A Famosa fortress in Bandar Hilir. It was constructed by the Portuguese and today features the popular A Famosa Resort which has a picturesque setting. Enjoy a relaxing stay in the resort and splash around in the water theme park.

The Melaka Zoo is the best zoo in Malaysia, featuring over 200 species of reptiles, birds, mammals and amphibians that are enclosed in areas that resemble their natural habitat. The zoo also houses the endangered Sumatran rhinoceros, red panda, grey wolf, and plenty of other rare animals.

A cruise along the Melaka River is truly satisfying, as is strolling along the riverside. The Taming Sari Revolving Tower offers breath-taking views of the city, but only for those that aren’t afraid of heights. Otherwise, it is best to see the city from the double-decker Panorama Melaka bus.

Shopping in Melaka will land you precious antiques, bargain souvenirs and beautiful handicrafts. There is no shortage of places to shop in Melaka, though it is most famous for its antiques. The weekend Jonker Walk Night Market is a great place to pick up bargain souvenirs and electronics, while the Dataran Pahlawan Malacca Megamall is the best place to shop for international brands.
