Malacca is a small city with many eye-catching sights and attractive modern establishments. It is easy to get around on foot or trishaw to explore the many places that make it unique. You'll learn about the rich heritage and history which has shaped Malacca into the unofficial historic capital of Malaysia. The most prominent contribution that Malacca has lent to the Malaysian cultural landscape is the Baba-Nyonya culture. Possessing an entirely new blend of customs, traditions, food and lifestyle, the Nyonya are especially prominent throughout Malacca. Although the city is a mix of old and new with historical buildings standing side by side with ultra modern shopping centres it retains this seamless blend of cultures.
Malacca City plays host to attention-grabbing attractions as well as some of the most sumptuous cuisine in the region. The administrative capital of Malacca, this town is also home to the newly-relocated Eye on Malacca as well as the two biggest shopping malls in Malacca – Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall.
