Melaka Tourism

Melaka overlooks the famous Straits of Malacca. Melaka/Malacca first started as a little village and their residents made a living fishing the coastal waters. This sleepy city moves at a slow pace and tourists are enchanted and fascinated by the junk winding the waterfront.

The streets are packed with mosques, shops and temples. The shops are well-known for selling genuine and fake antiques. A city with landmarks listed as UNESCO world heritage blends in the South-Indian, Chinese, Indonesian and now the Malaysian culture and exhibits the best of all! A trip to Melaka will give you a short time travel to the World War period!
