Melaka Travel Guide

Melaka, or Malacca, is a Malaysian state perched between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. It’s a blockbuster hit among backpackers for its proximity to two of the top Southeast Asian cities and its beautiful touristic spots.

Melaka’s biggest draw is its charming past as a major trading port and Portugal colony during the 1500s. Both can still be traced in many of the state's attractions. Its capital city aptly called the Historic City, Malacca City, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008. Other must-visit sites include the Melaka River, Christ Church, and the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, a 17th Century Chinese temple still in operation. The Dutch Square is another highlight with its attractive Dutch-era buildings mostly painted crimson.

Melaka is accessible by bus from the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, where most international flights land. If you are coming from Singapore, you may traverse the 250km journey via the North-South Expressway.
