One of the most enjoyable aspects of visiting Malaysia is the interplay of all the country’s cultural influences. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the coastal city of Malacca. As you explore the Old Town, Malacca’s obvious mix of Malay and Chinese elements creates an unusual and visually interesting destination. But the city also has historical remnants from its Portuguese and Dutch colonial past like the Stadthuys and A Famosa ruins. Ultimately, these elements come together to create a rich cultural and historical destination.
