About 125 kilometres away from Kuala Lumpur is Malacca City, the capital of Malacca State.

With its highly strategic location, Malacca was once a well-known international trading centre in the East with traders from Arabia, China and India all calling in at the port of Malacca. From there were born many of the descendants and tribes that exist in Malacca to this day. A great diversity of races and ethnicities have long existed among the local community. Malays, Malaysian Chinese, Malaysian Indians, Baba Nyonya, Kristang, Chitty and Eurasians are important ethnic groups living in the State of Malacca up to the present day.

A visit to Malacca takes you on a journey back in time to witness the adventures and discoveries during Malacca’s golden age. Notable historical sites like St. Paul’s Church, Christ Church, and Stadthuys remain some of the must-visit tourist spots in the city, featuring a variety of architectural styles. This is balanced with modern attractions such as water theme parks and cultural centres.

Besides being historically significant, Malacca is also gastronomic haven for foodies, with a variety of local street food offerings.
