10 Things To Do In Melaka Old Town, Malaysia

Melaka Old Town, it has to be said, is a bit of a baffling place. Located just two hours south of Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur, it could hardly bear any more evidence of its complex colonial history. Dutch architecture, Portuguese cuisine, British-influenced bars and pubs: all these things blend together with the hodgepodge of Asian…

Which Area to Stay in Kuala Lumpur for Tourists

Mainly because it’s the hub for Air Asia, where inexpensive flights can be purchased to anywhere else in the region, but also because there’s plenty to see and do in and around the city.
