Modern-day Malacca is small, sleepy city that belies its wealth of history.


Get around

Malacca is by no means a small city, but exploring on foot is a good idea.

My understanding is that the historical city center is small, but the urban sprawl is fairly large. Jpatokal 05:21, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

You got a point there. The opening sentence for Understand has the word "small" removed (at post time). 15:59, 24 April 2009 (EDT)

Links to external images[edit]

There are quite a few inline links to external images on a third party site - the images themselves are useful and relevant (although the site as a whole isn't). What's the policy/consensus on keeping them? 09:47, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

Kill 'em all. Any images should (licensed permitting) be uploaded here. Jpatokal 12:17, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

Eye On Malaysia[edit]

Could anyone update the Others section to include the ferris wheel named "Eye on Malaysia"? It used to be in Kuala Lumpur but has since moved to this place in 2008 or so. Yes, I admit that it is strange to introduce something "modern" amongst the historical features of Malacca, but it's still a tourist attraction. 15:59, 24 April 2009 (EDT)

As seen that Eye On Malaysia is currently not in service until further notice, there will not be any activity available, but merely a huge giant standing at the shore of Malacca Straits. By kititto 11:44, 12 August 2010 (GTM +8)

Contradiction. Taxis are friendly.... taxis are a rip off[edit]

  • Most of the taxis in Malacca don't have a metered system, and they often charge according to their likes.
  • Metered Taxis are just about everywhere...

I don't know which is true, but the second paragraph has what appears to be a egregious plug for a random taxi driver. I'll update the page after I visit in a few weeks if I am able to form an opinion.

Culling sleep and eat sections[edit]

I suspect this article has suffered from a lack of attn recently. It was clearly very good at one stage. I have started a makeover by culling the (very long and touty) sleep and eat sections. Touty entries and those without any useful information have been deleted. --Burmesedays 03:25, 1 April 2010 (EDT)

Ringo's Foyer blurb ripped from Lonely Planet SE Asia Guide[edit]

Can edit this myself as I'm staying there soon (13 Feb) but putting a note here in case anyone has first-hand experience of the place and is able to do an original write-up. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs), please do go ahead and edit it any time you wish. I could not find any LP text that matched this but if there is it should be edited immediately to avoid a copyright violation (copyvio).

metrobus price[edit]

price of metrobus from KL to Malacca is now 10 MYR (April 7 2014) at least for me :)

History dates[edit]

Article says that Malacca was founded in 1400, and converted to Islam in the 14th century, ie the 1300s. Can't be both.
