Cruises from Malacca
Malacca City (Melaka) is located on the west coast of the Malaysian Peninsula about 147 km S of inland Kuala Lumpur, and 200 km NW of Singapore. In earlier times Malacca was the greatest port in the region, as evidenced by its architecture that has been influenced by Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch, British, and Thai traders. Even today it lies on the Maritime Silk Road between China and Pakistan. Bandar Hilir (Malacca Town) is the soul of the city and the doorway to beauty, while the Town Square, with its nearby Queen Victoria's Fountain and the ruins of St Paul's Church, attract many visitors.
