Melissa L

Malacca, Malaysia

As an individual, I am interested in most everything that is 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, juggle, 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'm an avid traveller with experiences of travelling, working and living abroad in Asia, North and South America. Hoping to hit at the very least half of the 196 countries before I shuck off my mortal coils.

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 specialized in Malacca, I am also available for heritage tours of Kuala Lumpur for it is I would say the birthplace 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 city is uniquely rich in their respective local flavour!

A Recent Review of this guide

Melissa was very knowledgeable, answered every question we could come up with, and really made the afternoon interesting and enjoyable. Will look her up again if I ever get to come back to Kuala Lumpur.
