Visit Historic Melaka - -Ser 268
Melakan culture is a tapestry woven over six centuries of diverse ethnic customs, folklore and traditions. The harmonious co-existence of people of different cultures and religions inherited from centuries of multi-racial living has produced the fluid intermingling of the Malays, Chinese, Indians, Babas and Nyonyas, Portuguese, Chittys and Eurasians. Each ethnic group adds to the pluralistic and ever changing society of the people of Melaka that is itself a group of diverse friendly and hospitable people.
Each of these races holds steadfastly to its respective traditions and heritage which are infused in the different areas including food, religious customs and festivals, cultures, dances, architecture, dressing, jewelry and handcraft.
Today, Melaka has a lot to offer its rich tourists in term of its rich, varied cultures, ethnic customs, historical sites, religious festivals and traditional celebrations within the city itself and in the outlying districts of Alor Gajah and Jasin.
