Once a bustling trading port, Melaka (Malacca) has a layered history of architecture and culture and is now an internationally recognized heritage site. The diverse mix of temples, mosques, churches and Dutch government buildings, China Town and a Portuguese fortress give this city a truly unique feel.
From Kuala Lumpur, you can reach Melaka in a couple of hours by car or bus. Once there, the Melaka Town Bus can get you around the historical city. Flag down a trishaw, easily spotted thanks to their flowery decorations, or rent a bicycle to explore the sights at your own pace. A lot of Melaka’s attractions and shops close on Tuesdays, so plan accordingly.
Enjoy fresh Portuguese and Malay seafood dishes in the small fishing village known as the Portuguese Settlement, southeast of the city center. Admire the A Famosa ruins and its 16th-century St. Paul’s Church.
More European influence came from the Dutch, who evicted the Portuguese and ruled the port city for more than 150 years. Remaining examples of Dutch architecture are the Red Square’s striking 17th-century Stadthuys (City Hall) and 18th-century Christ Church. The Stadthuys is now the Museum of History and Ethnography.
Get a glimpse of how the Malays lived before European settlement in the Melaka Sultanate Palace Museum. On the waterfront, immerse yourself in Melaka’s trading history and explore the Quayside Heritage Centre and the Maritime Museum in a replica Portuguese ship.
At night, take a river cruise to see the historic waterfront warehouses and churches in a different light and sample typical Chinese-Malay cuisine afterwards. In Chinatown (Bukit Cina), the hawkers at the Jonker Street Night Market serve delicious food, skillfully prepared in front of you. Order chicken rice balls and hunt for souvenirs and antiques after your meal.
To end your day, stroll along the Melaka waterfront for a view of the brilliantly lit mosque, Masjid Selat Melaka, on nearby Melaka Island.
Although room is small but is fine because I get what I need with the price I paid. The mattress, pillow and bolster are soft and comfy. I will visit this hotel again. Walking distance to jonker street.
Nice environment and very friendly staff. Booked for our company's guest and very satisfied wuth the services provided.
When I made the booking, the price of the room per night was quoted as SGD 111 per night . At the hotel, I was told it is RM508 per night ( SGD 169). This is terrible. I was overcharged a total of SGD 233 for the two rooms that I booked for 2 nights.
Could have been better in terms of the cleanliness of the room. Nevertheless, a good experience and will definitely suggest this to my family and friends
hotel is great. however pool is exceptionally dirty. most users has no idea of proper pool usage, such as wearing clothes into pool. This is common to a certain local racial group I witnessed at level 12. My 6year old son rejected the pool, saying its dirty & why are these people wearing clothes ...
