About Malacca

Malacca is located in Malaysia on the Straits of Malacca. The city's history was deeply influenced by Zheng He’s voyages to the Western Ocean during the Ming Dynasty. It was successively colonized by Portugal, Holland, England and Japan. Thus, the architectural style here is very diverse. In 2008, Malacca and Penang together became World Heritage Sites. All of the shops and residences throughout the old quarter of the city have been subsequently restored to their former glory, thus making this historical city a living museum.

 The Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum was established in 1986. The Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum displays the history of the Chinese-Malays, who are also known as Baba-Nyonya or Peranakan in Malacca.
Chinatown
4.3/5
233 Reviews
Featured Neighborhood
Chinatown is located on the north bank of the Malacca River. The road is not long and can only be used by two cars. Most of the streets in Chinatown are buildings, and the beams are relatively high. They all have a history of more than 100 years. Chinatown is worth visiting slowly. The buildings here are all unique, the colors are more colorful, the graffiti-style western style, and the Chinese style dragon-shaped pattern.

Travel Tips
Malacca Porta De Santiago (A Famosa) is also known as the Old Gateway; it is ancient European architecture with a rough pattern carved on the gate and a rectangularly arched door at the top, which looks like it is wearing a hat on its head. The gun tower on the right is preserved to-date. The Stadthuys, former residence of Han Wenjiang, is a beautiful Gothic structural facing the sea.

I am from Malacca to Kuala Lumpur on December 25, the ticket for the 707 company bought at Melaka Sentrel, to the Fudu station in Kuala Lumpur, very close to Chinatown, so Fudu should also have a car to Malacca.
