If you are visiting Malaysia, we highly recommend Melaka or Malacca, one of the most visited tourists destinations in the country with its hand-crafted souvenirs, red-painted Dutch brick architecture, colorful Baba-Nyononya houses, grandiose temples, and commanding mosques. Melaka is considered the birthplace of the Malay civilization, with a rich history of colonial rule under the British, the Portuguese, and the Dutch. Melaka’s currency is Ringgit, and the best rates are offered by malls’ money changers in Kuala Lumpur.
There are three international airports in Kuala Lumpur namely the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) which is a low-cost carrier, and the Subang Skylark Airport. From Kuala Lumpur, you can take a bus and travel two and a half hours ride which is cheaper, or you can also take a flight to Malacca International Airport that is situated in Batu Berendam.
