Melaka travel photography – Malaysia

Melaka is a small city in Southern Malaysia. It is a short 2-hour bus journey from Kuala Lumpur. The Old Town is noted as a UNESCO Heritage Site. Back in the 15th century, Melaka used to be one of most important trading port in Asia. This position has now been lost in favour to Singapore. There is not much to do in Melaka as it is a very small city but it is worth spending a day or two. Expect heritage architecture, street art and funky trishaws.

Melaka is also the last place I visit in Malaysia before going to Singapore. It has been really interesting to travel Malaysia since it is not known to be a major tourist destination in Southeast Asia.

Do not expect much in terms of landscapes as the only ones places worth visiting are the tea plantations of the Cameron Highlands and the National Park of Taman Negara. The real highlight of Malaysia concerns its cultural heritage from Malaysian, Chinese and Indian communities.

Architectural wise, there are a countless number of highly creative buildings, street art and stunning places of worship! Off the beaten track places such as Alor Setar or Kuala Kangsar have also been some incredible discoveries!

Malaysian food is definitely not to my liking. However, there are a countless number of Asian food option thanks to Malaysia’s cultural heritage! Overall, Malaysian are extremly respectful and nice people.
