Although Kuala Lumpur is usually the main destination which draws tourists from all over the globe to visit Malaysia, there are tonnes of other places for you to choose and spend your vacation here. One of those places is Melaka. Coined as the ‘Amsterdam of the East’ it is based in the south of Malaysia and just over two hours from Singapore.
It’s famous nowadays for its colourful rickshaws and this is definitely something which I would recommend you take a ride on, but there are other attractions which will show off their history and heritage. One of the main things I loved about Malaysia was the cacophony of cultures; Malay, Baba and Nonya, Indian and Thai, and the fact they are all there together in unity. In my opinion, Melaka is the one place which truly celebrates all of these cultures in Malaysia and it’s waiting here for you to enjoy.
