The historical city is painted not only with hues seen on the buildings, streets, establishments and decorative vehicles but more so with tradition and culture that keeps the spirit of "Melaka" alive. Walking down the interesting streets gives you a feeling of being transported in history. Influenced by the Dutch and Portuguese, the beauty of its remains reflects the beauty of the city's multicultural attraction. Endless old houses with painted window panels and facade is more than a sight to behold. The once Straits of Malacca was known to be the passage way of global voyagers and the international port became one of the prime centers of trade in Southeast Asia. The local cuisine is a gastronomic haven of a variety of dishes from the common street food to speciality restaurants. Laksa satay and spices overflow the menu with endless delicacies but nevertheless like a feast for the gods.
