Hailed as the starting point of the country’s civilisation, Melaka—or Malacca—is often labelled as Malaysia’s most historic state. It was founded sometime during the 14th century, and would go on to become a pivotal port and trading post for Southeast Asia. Today, it stands as a cultural and national icon with its range of architectural, culinary and cultural offerings. Its historical significance was certified in 2008, when it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
