Malacca in Top 50 Must Visit World Destinations

It was recently reported that the listing of Melaka at 28th position, out of the 45 destinations in the world which should be visited this year, by The New York Times newspaper is expected to attract more than 12 million tourists to the state this year.

Melaka, one of the two heritage cities in Malaysia to be given the nod by UNESCO, was the centre of trade between East and West in the 1400-s, and was known as the Venice of the East. It is well worth a visit with its Portuguese, Dutch, English and Malaysian influences.


According to Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam, the recognition given to Melaka also proved that the government’s efforts in adding value and preserving old heritage had gained world attention.

Now, if only they could only make sure the monorail does not keep breaking down.

The listing of Melaka at 28th position, out of the 45 destinations in the world which should be visited this year, by The New York Times newspaper is expected to attract more than 12 million tourists to the state this year.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the recognition given to Melaka also proved that the government’s efforts in adding value and preserving old heritage had gained world attention.
“We do not expect to be given such a recognition, which is the second, because Melaka has been listed on lonelyplanet.com as one of the 10 destinations which should be visited in 2007,” he told reporters after the monthly assembly of the state administration here.
He said the recognition, made through an article titled “The 45 Places to Go in 2012″, published last Friday, would further spur the Melaka government to boost the state tourism industry.
Last year, Melaka attracted about 11 million visitors, he added.
Mohd Ali said efforts would continue to be made by the state government to attract more visitors, including to add value to all old buildings and diversify tourism products.
