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.

Jalan Besar, main road of Kuala Lumpur
Main town in the Cameron Highlands (with Brinchang to the north and Ringlet to the south). Most budget guesthouses are here and it is the starting point for many jungle trails.

The town is itself is not that spectacular, the beauty lies outside of it on the lush green hills. After sunset, there’s not much to do besides keeping yourself warm (it does get quite cool) or visiting some of the restaurants (there are few good ones actually - a popular dish to have is Steam Boat). From Tanah Ratah you get bus tickets to Penang, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur, even Mini-bus rides to Kuala Besut (jetty to Perhentian Islands) and Taman Negara.
