About Malacca

Malaysia is situated one to seven degrees north of the equator. The State of Melaka, one of the fourteen states within Malaysia, is situated on the South-Western Coast of Peninsular Malaysia facing the Straits of Melaka and sandwiched between the states of Negeri Sembilan and Johor.

Melaka covers an area of 1,658 square kilometers and is divided into three districts, namely Melaka Tengah, Alor Gajah and Jasin.

The North-South Expressway allows easy access into Melaka from all states of Malaysia. It takes about an hour and a half to travel by road from Kuala Lumpur to Melaka and approximately three hours from Singapore.

Another way to get to Melaka from Kuala Lumpur is to take a leisurely drive through the coastal and country roads passing through Klang, Morib and Port Dickson before arriving in Melaka. Those coming from Singapore can take the picturesque route passing through coastal kampungs or villages and plantations.
