Malaysia once looked to Malacca as its stronghold being home to one of the most powerful trading ports in South East Asia – it seemed to lose favour as Singapore and Penang developed and became weak in their wake. It is not all bad news however and as one door closes as they say – Malacca can now boast an extraordinary amount of ancient architecture, old ways of life and a plethora of charming villages on its outskirts. In keeping with its character places like the Majestic Malacca make an ideal base. If you are thinking of travelling in Malaysia then do consider this comfortingly Malayan city full of historic sites, diverse street food (Malay, Chinese and European influences), night market and much more all of which may be explored by bicycle if you choose.
