Welcome To Malacca

Welcome To Malacca, originally uploaded by airam94564.

Here are the pictures I took on a day trip to Malacca in Malaysia.

Malacca or Melaka in malay is known for its historical prominence and its cultural appeal. In the 16th century, Melaka enjoyed a reputation as the foremost maritime trading center in the region. So coveted was Melaka by the European powers that it was ruled successively by the Portuguese, Dutch, and English until the Federation of Malaysia was formed on 8/31/57. (Info from Malacca flier)

This is the entry to Malaysia in Johor Bahru, the city at the border of Malaysia and Singapore.


  1. ive never been to both countries. i heard that malaysia offers a lot for adventurers.

  2. I want to visit Malaysia someday. I've heard some nice things about the place. :)

  3. yes, i've read up on Malacca a bit and it does have quite a colorful history... it would be a nice place to visit one day...

    maybe ride a 'trishaw' and take a tour around the streets to see the architecture.... that would be interesting....

  4. Great fun to see these photos! We rarely travel...so it's cool to see the world thru your lens.
