After all that hectic running around in Penang, take a bit of a breather and slow down for a few days as you learn about Malaysia’s past in the historical town of Malacca. Malacca used to be the main trading port in the region, and later on, was a main administrative area during British colonial times. Because of this, there are plenty of museums and places you can go to see for yourself how life was like in Malacca’s heyday.
Some of these places include the Sultanate Palace, the Stadthuys, A Famosa Fort, the Cheng Ho Cultural Museum, Villa Sentosa, St.Paul’s Church, and many more. If you’re up for something more lively, then be sure not to miss out on going to the Jonker Walk Night Market, the Malacca Zoo, Melaka Raya nightlife area, and the Malacca River Cruise. While in Malacca, don’t forget to sample some scrumptious Nyonya food, which originated here.
