Melaka

Melaka (a.k.a. Malacca) is the capital of the Malaysian state of Malacca.
Traditionally, the spot where Melaka stands today was the center of Malaccan history. It was the capital of the Malaccan Sultanate and the center of the Malay world in the 15th and the 16th century before it fell to the Portuguese in 1511. Centuries of colonization by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British have shaped the architecture of the town.

Getting There
To get to Batu Kucing (malay: Cat Rock), you need to hike up and down the jungle trail that starts at the end of the beach at D'Coconut Resort (East Wing, behind the rocks). This will take you past the Turtle Watch Project to Turtle Bay. Walk along the beach until you find the start of another jungle tral about 2/3 down the beach. Another quick uphill hike and you are there. It takes about 10 sweaty minutes from D'Coconut Resort (East Wing) to Batu Kucing
