Things to do
Malaysia is home to a dazzling display of wildlife. Just a short journey from your luxury hotel is Melaka Zoo, with over 200 species of animals and birds. Visit at twilight for an exclusive night safari.
Malacca has been a thriving and successful region for centuries, and you can see part of that success in the surviving traditional architecture. Houses on the coastal road are rather grand, with distinctive concrete exterior stairwells and attractive tiling.
Local culture is vibrant. During the Christmas festivities, the Portuguese settlement is lit up with bright decorations and lights. And in Chinese New Year in February, you’ll see red lanterns decorating private homes and communities.
