During Malacca's growth in popularity, traders anywhere from Europe to China were selling and buying the imense varity of goods sold. The Culture of Trade is what allowed Malacca to be so successful. The Culture of Trade was the ability to communicate without speaking the same language or have the same ethnic or religious backgrounds. Even though Malacca was a Muslim city they embraced all religions and all who traded were made to feel at home.
