Located on the West Coast of the Malaysian Peninsular is the state of Melaka (formerly known as Malacca). Melaka is about 120 km south east of Kuala Lumpur and about 250 km north-west of Singapore and is easily accessible by road via the North-South highway.
The city of Melaka is divided into the new and old sections. The older part of the city is fairly compact and has many historical and cultural attractions tucked into the nooks and crannies of its narrow streets. A remnant of Melaka’s glorious past lies within the Town Square and waterfront area near the river.
Just above the Town Square is St. Paul’s Hill (Bukit St. Paul) which is the site of the original Portuguese fort of A’Famosa and St. Paul’s Church. There is a sign-posted heritage trail which visitors can follow to visit all the historical places in the old part of town.
The new section of Melaka lies across the Melaka River and is mostly built on land reclaimed from the sea. It consists of modern shopping centres like the Mahkota Parade and is a bustling food and entertainment district. Outside Melaka town, there are nice beaches, two excellent offshore islands with resorts and a golf course. The Ayer Keroh district is close to the North-South Expressway and has many recreational theme parks.
Malaysia is a land rich with culture, nature and modernity. Malays, Chinese, Indians and many other ethnic groups have lived together peace and harmony in Malaysia for generations. Multiculturalism has made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise and home to hundreds of colourful festivals. It’s no wonder that we love celebrating and socialising. As a people, Malaysians are very relaxed, warm and friendly.
Geographically, Malaysia is almost as diverse as its culture. 11 states and 2 federal territories (Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya) form Peninsular Malaysia which is separated by the South China Sea from East Malaysia which includes the 2 states (Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo) and a third federal territory, the island of Labuan.
One of Malaysia’s key attractions is its extreme contrasts which further add to this theme of ‘diversity’. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts while five-star hotels sit just metres away from ancient reefs.
