About Malacca

Malacca is located in Malaysia on the Straits of Malacca. The city's history was deeply influenced by Zheng He’s voyages to the Western Ocean during the Ming Dynasty. It was successively colonized by Portugal, Holland, England and Japan. Thus, the architectural style here is very diverse. In 2008, Malacca and Penang together became World Heritage Sites. All of the shops and residences throughout the old quarter of the city have been subsequently restored to their former glory, thus making this historical city a living museum.
