If you are interested in history or culture, this is the place for you! Personally, i love this place. As a matter of fact, I wake up early in order to see the details of the heritage center. Walking alone in the center is like owning the whole heritage center. Nothing can get your attention except the whole of the... More

Took a 2 hour van trip from KL and Malacca and quite enjoyed it. The Heritage Centre is nice and quite quaint. It was clean and rich culturally but felt a bit too manufactured maybe because everything was freshly painted. The church on the top of the hill was beautiful and you could see the strait of malacca from there.... More

Its history and architecture are worth of your time and money to go there. At least a day trip to discover the beauty of Malacca and enjoying the food there is a must, especially the dishes from nyonya. A cruise along the Strait of Malacca will bring you to a part of Malysia history, tell you a story of how... More

The best place to understand the rich past of this historical city. Well decorated and furnished, it is a dive in the life of Chinese immigrants who married local women and started the great Perenakan culture ! A must see for everyone !

Melaka Heritage Centre has many beautiful building to be seen. What I like the most is because every historic building in here is located not too far away from each other, so you could finish the tour of this city in one day.

If u want to get away from the maddening crowd, to a beautiful quaint place brimming with history, then Melaka/ Malacca is the place to go ! A beautiful city, with vignettes of a Portuguese past visible all over it, but which also is cosmopolitan in nature - with Chinese & Hindu Temples complementing the English & Portuguese Churches.
