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 Malacca River is a small narrow strait, and the Malay Peninsula faces Sumatra. This long narrow strait carries the necessary passage between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.

Featured Neighbourhood
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.
Malacca Straits Mosque
216 Reviews
The Malacca Straits Mosque is located on the artificially built Malacca Island. If the water level is high, it looks like a floating building. The strait mosque under the glory of the setting sun is very beautiful. The chanting sounds from the radio are combined with the sound of the waves. The sunset is set against the golden dome. It is a pleasant thing to sit on the levees on the seashore to enjoy the beautiful scenery. After dark, the mosque will light up and the whole building will become another color, with no charm.
St Paul's Church
306 Reviews
The St. Paul's Church was built in 1521 and built for the Portuguese. The famous missionary St. Francis was buried here, and the statue of the priest of Franciscans was placed in front of the church. After the Dutch occupied Malacca in 1670, the church was used as a castle, and many bullet holes were still visible on the outer wall today. In 1753, as a cemetery for the Dutch aristocracy, some tombstones with Latin and Portuguese are still preserved.
