About Travel to Melaka
Melaka is large city with over 500,000 permanent residents which is very popular with Malaysian and Singaporean tourists. Melaka City is not currently connected to the Malaysian railwork so if you want to travel there by public transport you need to either take a flight to Melaka or a long distance bus service. The airport is located 11.4 km by road from Melaka city centre and the long distance bus terminal (Melaka Sentral Bus Station) is located 4 km from Melaka city centre. For travellers arriving into Melaka by either flight or bus we recommend taking a taxi to your accommodation. Although it’s only 4 km from the bus station into the city local bus services (bus number 17) tend to be unreliable and you may experience a long wait for a bus.
Melaka is an interesting city with a colourful history. Melaka began its development into a major settlement around 1,400 AD when the Sultan of Singapore relocated there after Singapore was invaded. For more than 500 years, until Malayasia gained independence in 1957, Melaka was ruled over by succession of foreign powers: Portugal, Holland, Great Britain and briefly Japan. Of these colonial powers the most prominent influence on the city in terms of its architecture was Holland. The centre of the city has a large Dutch style church (Christ Church Melaka) and nearby an imoressive Dutch government building (the Stadthuys). Also notable are the recreation of the Sultan’s palace and the city’s many Chinese style temples such as the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple and Melaka San Duo Temple.
Melaka is also popular because of its relaxed atmosphere, many shops, wide range of restaurants and bars, and good value hotels. In the evening time Melaka becomes very lively. The weekend evening market on Jonker Street is very popular as is walking along the Malacca River which is lined with bars and restaurants that tend to stay open until late in the evening.
