Melaka, Where It All Began

Back in the 15th century, Melaka was one of Southeast Asia’s greatest trading ports. Over time it lost favour to Singapore, but this slowdown in trade protected much of the ancient architecture of the state capital, Melaka City, from falling foul of development.

The historic centre was crowned a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, kick starting a decade of renewal. Modern Melaka swaggers once more, with visitors pouring in to experience the bustling weekend night market, heritage architecture and famously glitzy trishaws.
