Malacca or Melaka: Malacca City in Malaysia

Malacca or Melaka, a former Portuguese and Dutch colony has everything the visitor may wish for. Malaysia is a multicultural society  and Malacca City in the south of the country offers a unique mixture that is worth seeing.The town is very pleasant and together with fine hotels and restaurants the tourist can enjoy shopping as well as sightseeing.

Malacca city is also a modern city .











Tourists can enjoy a boat ride to see the houses by the river.




The most impressive building in Malacca is the replica of the Sultanate Palace.The Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum is also worth visiting but visitors are not allowed to take photographs.


I got a bookmark 











The Palace is surrounded by a beautiful garden,when I visited it there were very few tourists and it was really enjoyable, although really hot.









 









The historic centre of Malacca was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2008 at the same time as George Town (Penang).Both places are very interesting and locals are very friendly with tourists.

The so called A Famosa Fortress was built by the Portuguese around 1511.








It is a pleasure to walk in the city and discover traditional houses and temples.

















The architecture in the city is indeed varied.












People usually gather around the Dutch church .





In  this area visitors are offered a peculiar and colourful mean of transport.



The Kampung Kling Mosque is situated in Harmony Street which has that name because of the proximity of an Indian and a Chinese temple.




If you have the chance of visiting Malacca , do it , you won't regret it!
