Melaka, also known as The Historic State, is the third smallest state in Malaysia after Perlis and Penang. Located in the southern region of Peninsular Malaysia, Melaka is bordering Negeri Sembilan to the north and Johor to the south. It has a coastal line facing the Straits of Malacca. The state’s capital is Malacca City, which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 2008.

Famous as a tourist destination, some of the notable historical sites in Melaka include the Stadhuys, A’Famosa Fort, Christ Church, Jonker Street and Portuguese Square. Many buildings in the capital still preserve the colonial architecture.  With the rapid development of the state, its property market has also grown over the years. The state’s landscape now features modern commercial properties such as office blocks, shop-offices, shopping complexes and industrial lots. Residential properties include terraced houses, semi-detached houses and bungalows. Apartments and condominiums are also becoming increasingly popular.

Generally, this state has a tropical climate. It is said that Melaka is the driest and hottest state in Malaysia but weather conditions are still considered moderate. Temperatures can reach as high as 33˚C. There is often relief from the heat with occasional rainfall. The wettest months in Melaka are from September to October.

The ethnic composition of Melaka’s population consists of Malays; Chinese including the Peranakan community; Indians including the Chitty people; Kristang, people of partial Portuguese ancestry; and Dutch Eurasians. In addition to the Malay culture, other cultural influences in Melaka include Peranakan, Portuguese and Sikhs. These influences are reflected in the local cuisines such as cendol, belacan, assam laksa, devil’s curry and Portuguese egg tarts.
