About Melaka, Malaysia

Malaysia’s historic city Malacca has witnessed the height of a Malay empire and later occupation by the Portuguese, Dutch and English. She is also the birthplace of the Malaccan Baba Nonya culture, and Malaysian Eurasian culture, stemming from Portuguese communities who settled and intermarried locally. Visiting Malacca today is to engage in the flow of rediscovering her colorful past in historical monuments and ruins, and to experience the constant creation and unfolding of the new.

Poised in the South of West Malaysia, Malacca is the third smallest state in Malaysia. Though small in size, Malacca is historically important. The declaration of independence was proclaimed in Malacca when Malaya gained its independence from the British. In 1989, Malacca or Malakka as it is sometimes spelled, was named as Malaysia’s historic city. Malacca was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 2008.
