Melaka - Historic City of The Straits of Malacca (UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site)
Travel with me back into time and be guided through the Srivijayan Empire in the 7th century right through to the Historical Melaka - one of the 'Historic Cities of the Straits of Malacca', a UNESCO World Heritage Site inscribed in 2008, also known as the 'International Emporium' of the Maritime Silk Route of the 15th Century, where more than 80 languages were spoken, truly a Cultural Melting Pot, the Golden Years of the Malacca Sultanate. Experience the legacies of the three European powers of the Portuguese, Dutch and British, a 'living' heritage trail left behind and still existing till these days, giving birth to the Peranakan Baba & Nyonya and the PeranakanChitti, the traditional trades, the 'Harmony Street' where the prayer houses of different ethnic groups are just a stone through away from each other. Witness the architectural heritage of 'Hereen Street' or 'Millionaires Row' and be amazed with the diversified souvenir paradise of the 'Jonker Street' or 'Antique Street'.
