Where to stay in Malacca

Exploring Malacca

The port city of Malacca once formed part of the historic Strait Settlements of the Malacca Strait. For more than a hundred years beginning in the early 1800s, the Malacca Strait was one of the wealthiest waterways of the world as it connected the maritime trade of Europe, India and the Far East. Malacca is one of the benefactors of this prosperity and its historic and grandiose colonial structures clearly show it.

Due to its strategic location, it was colonised at different points in history by three different colonial powers: the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British. This is, of course, apart from the multitude of immigrants who came to Malacca before and after the Europeans arrived, which include the Chinese, the Malays and the Indians. This surge of different ethnic peoples also resulted in the birth of new cultures. These include the distinct Chinese-Malay culture of the Peranakan people and the Malay-Portuguese culture of the Kristang people.

Sightseeing in Malacca

- Red Square

Right in the heart of town is Dutch Square, sometimes called Red Square because the entirety of it, including the structures within and the buildings surrounding it, are all in a fiery red colour. The most prominent structure in Dutch Square is Christ Church, a Protestant church built by the Dutch in the mid-1700s as a replacement for an old Portuguese church on the site.


- Jonker Street Night Market


This great weekly market is a great experience. Go to grab a bite, buy some souvenirs or trinkets, and then have your future told by one of the fortune tellers.
