Immerse yourself in the rich and vibrant history of this colourful state with a stay in one of our Malacca hotels! Malacca – in Malaysia’s southern region – has in the past been under the rule of Dutch, Portuguese and British forces, targeted for its thriving trade as a major international port. It’s the multicultural history of Malacca that makes it such an excellent destination.
And you don’t need to take our word for it, as Malacca’s Historic Centre was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in July 2008, cementing its historical importance and ensuring it will be preserved for years to come. The best way to see Malacca is on foot, so head out from your Malacca accommodation and explore the city sights, starting with the Historic Centre.
Here you will find Red Square, where the Dutch architecture is on display in the form of Christ Church and Stadthuys; the latter also houses the Historical Museum. The Portuguese contingent isn’t forgotten either, with the remains of the A Formosa fortress serving as a reminder of the first of Malacca’s invaders. A cruise down the Melaka River should not be missed. You’ll see the beautiful sites of Malacca as you head under bridges and wind your way past the old colonial buildings, churches and Chinatown. You won’t be short of sights during a stay in a Malacca hotel!
This melting pot of cultures also provides abundantly for another of the senses: taste! While you stay in one of our Malacca hotels treat your tastebuds, with anything from Malaysian chicken rice balls, to Portuguese devil curries, to the Malaccan specialties of satay celup! There is definitely no shortage of choice when you are dining out from your hotel in Malacca.
Why not book your Malacca hotel today? You’ll be immersed in history and surrounded by great tasting cuisine in no time at all!Image Attribution: carworld under Creative Commons
