Melaka State travel guide

Landmarks · Bodies of Water · History Museums
Historic State
Melaka State, an area with a wealth of history based around its main port town, beckons tourists who wish to walk in the footsteps of emperors, conquerers, and colonists. The Portuguese, Dutch, and the British all ruled over the area at separate points during the colonial era, and some of the places they built--the forts, the churches, the memorials--still stand alongside the markets and clanhouses of Chinese immigrants in historical districts, including a World Heritage Site. Botanical gardens and large nature parks await those who prefer to bypass the urban areas. The rural region is known for its trekking routes through recreational forests.
