<Info> Malacca (Malay : Melaka)

Malacca, Malaysia

Other Previous Threads On Melaka







Melaka is the birthplace of the Malay Sultanate and Malaysia's most historic city. Here, the Portuguese, Dutch, British and Japanese each played their roles in shaping the history of this region.

Melaka was founded in 1396 by Parameswara, a Palembang prince that fled Temasik (ancient Singapore). He decided to declare this new found land as his new kingdom and named it 'Melaka' after the name of the tree under which he had sought refuge. By the end of the 15th century, Melaka had grown to become a great Muslim maritime empire and a major port-of-call for ships and merchants from as far away as China, Japan, India, Arabia and South Africa.

The Portuguese soon recognized her strategic location in the middle of the spice trade route between China and India. In 1511, the Portuguese became the first foreign power to rule Melaka. The Dutch followed in 1641 and in 1824, Melaka was handed over to Britain. British rule in Melaka was interrupted by the Japanese occupation during World War II and resumed at the end of the war.

Melaka along with the other states under the Federation of Malaya gain its independence from Britain on 31 August 1957 and in 1963, the Federation of Malaya became Malaysia. In recognition of Melaka's contribution to Malaysia's history, Melaka was declared a Historical City on 15 April , 1989.




The state of Malacca covers an area of 1,650-km2. The state is divided into 3 districts: Central Malaka (Melaka Tengah), Alor Gajah and Jasin. Malacca sits upon the southwestern coast of Malay Peninsular opposite Sumatra, with the state of Negeri Sembilan to the north and Johor to the east.

Food and More Food

Malacca's rich Peranakan culture has given birthed to a variety of delicious food that is spicy and sweet, referred to as 'Nyonya' food. The Nyonya style of cooking is the result of a fusion between Chinese and Malay ingredients and recipes, the result of Chinese traders in the past settling in Malacca and adopting the Malay way of living.

Malaccan Nyonya food is also distinct from Penang Nyonya food, where it can also be found. Favouring more spices and coconut milk, the result is a sweeter blend of cooking with a fiery tinge. In comparison, Penang Nyonya food favours a more practical style of cooking, employing simpler ingredients with a helping of 'Belacan' (Black prawn paste). Malaccan dishes are definitely cooked up with more time in the kitchen, the women taking great pride in their wok.

On the other hand, there's also plenty of Malay, Chinese and Indian dishes to savour. Not surprisingly, many tourists flock around the streets of Malacca to feast on the culinary delights that it has to offer. Eating is never a problem as there are plenty of restaurants and stalls to choose from just by driving through town. Some of Malacca's signature dishes can be seen below:

Exit at Ayer Keroh from NSHW and head towards Melacca town. Once you are there, go to Jalan Hang Jebat (Jonker Walk). There are plenty of Chendol places there. The ones I like are No 1 and No 88. No 1 is the simpler version though I am not sure if they are still selling. Its a quaint shop with lots of interesting things. No 88 is a bigger shop and they sell a lot of other food as well. No 1 is safe to eat if you are Muslim because there is no other food stuff. No 88...I'm not sure.


I'm sure there are other stalls where there is good Chendol. Some people like the Chendol at the Tan Kim Hock store along Jalan Bendahara...but I found it severely lacking in quality and flavour.


Have fun!

After Ayer Keroh Toll, the 1st left turn (about 100 metres nia) will lead you to the butterfly park (keep left).

Entrance fee is rm6 for foreigners I think.

Got charge for camera too.

Not a bad place to visit.

If you are doing a Day trip, then try the open space carpark for bikes behind Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall.


Otherwise, I think most hotels in Melaka have parking lots for bikes with security.


Don't know why but i felt pretty safe to just leave my bike there for the whole day and didn't worried at all.

Melaka is an old town with good food, a nice get away place during weekends, stay 1 night go night market eat, shopping, eat again, relax.

Slow pace town, shiok.


With every good wishes

Do book your hotels in advance to avoid any disappointment.


My last trip to Melaka (Good Friday) me and my gf stayed @ this hotel call 906 Hotel which is located on Jalan Melaka Raya 15 which is 15 mins walk away from Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall. The room was pretty simple. No Fridge thot. But for the price of RM$75 (Promotional Rate) with Breakfast (Not very fantastic), you cannot complain much (The bath towel STINK!!!!)



  • Mahkota Parade Shopping Mall
  • Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall
  • AEON Bandaraya Melaka Shopping Centre (Please ride/drive your own transport there. Took us 45 mins to get a cab by walking to the Melaka Sentral)
  • Tesco
