What to see in Malaysia
Tourist attractions Malaca
The small city of Malacca is one of the oldest cities in Malaysia and its port was for many years one of the most important in the country, where goods came from India, China and the West. Its simple architecture, composed of low-rise buildings, has attracted the attention of UNESCO, which declared it a world heritage site in 2008. Some of the most touristic points of the city are the Sultan's Palace Museum, located at the feet of Saint Paul Hill and where the old town hall, which houses the Historical and Ethnographic Museum, is located. The most atmospheric area of the city, however, is the Chinatown neighborhood, where the Jonker promenade and the Jalan Hang Jebat are home to the vast majority of temples, the best restaurants in the city and, when night falls, the streets come alive with night market stalls. Before reaching the river, it is also recommended t to visit the Christian church of Malacca, iconic for its bright red brickwork. The multiculturalism of Malaysia is also evident in Malacca, which despite its small size has important Buddhist, Hindu and Chinese temples. Some of the most visited are the Kampung Keling mosque, the Cheng Hoon Teng temple or Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi, the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia.
