Malacca is a city with 600 years of history controlled by five foreign powers (the Sultan of Singapore, Portuguese, Dutch, English and Japanese) until Malaysia achieved independence in 1957. All of these foreign invaders, except the Japanese who only remained for a short period, left an architectural and cultural mark on the city. The main attractions are all located fairly close to together near Dutch Square, with the banks of the River Melaka lined with colourful small bars and restaurant giving the city centre a cosmopolitan cafe culture scene. Malacca also has a lot of good hotels and shopping opportunities, and for these combined reasons Malacca is one of Malaysia’s most popular tourist centres.
