Melissa L

Malacca, Malaysia

As an individual. . I am interested in most everything that's related to art, culture, history (both yours and mine!)

and the human psyche. My friends call me quirky for the range of interest I engage in. I hike, backpack, poi, read and do a range of stuff that catches my fancy. =D I usually feel at my best when it comes to sharing and learning. I would say I enjoy interacting at a personal level with most people I meet so you could expect a tour with me to be more like a chat with a friend. =)

As a guide. . .
I have a deep passion for culture, present lifestyle as well as history both mine and yours (where ever it is that you hail from!)and if there is a place in Malaysia where I could specialize or recommend a visit, it would be my hometown - the (600 years!)historical city of Malacca where it all begins!

While I specialize in Malacca, I am also available for heritage tours of Kuala Lumpur for it is I would say the birth place of modern day Malaysia particularly in terms of economics and governance. Please do inquire should you be interested to have me as your guide in other cities/ locations in Malaysia as each cities are uniquely rich in their respective local flavor! I shall be uploading more tour options soon! =)

Credentials

I am an English language city guide accredited by the Malaysian Ministry of Tourism.

I am also a member of the Kuala Lumpur tour guide association (KLTGA) which stipulates ongoing tourism knowledge training as a requirement for license renewal.

Special training:
I am a volunteer attached with the National Museum and am currently looking forward to attaining my nature guide certification that'd enable me to share a deeper dimension of the unique biodiversity in Malaysia.
