Melaka, also known as Malacca, is an interesting blend of Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch and British influences and is considered Malaysia's most historic city. It was once the most important trading port in the region but is now little more than a sleepy backwater. There are a few remnants of the Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial past, but on the streets it is the Chinese influence which is felt most.
