Malacca / Melaka
The small city-state of Melaka (Malacca) which began as a historic port city, is one steeped in an intoxicating multicultural world of heritage architecture and filled with mystery, history and legends. With centuries of colonization by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British, Melaka is probably the best example of multicultural colonialism in existence.
