What You Can Expect
First you'll visit Dutch Square (Stadthuys) to see the striking red 17th-century buildings that were once the offices of the Dutch governors. Then, take a short walk up St Paul's Hill for a panoramic view of Malacca, the Malacca Strait and the old town center called Bandar Hilir. You'll see the ruins of St Paul's Church and note the intricately decorated 17th century Dutch tombstones that line the interior.
After taking in the views from St Paul’s Hill, stop into a local restaurant where you will savor a typical Nyonya lunch. When you’re refreshed, you'll follow your guide to Jonker Street, also known as Antique Street, where you can browse through a plethora of antiques and clothing shops.
Then visit the A'Famosa fortress, built by the Portuguese in the 1500s and among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia, of which only the Porta de Santiago survives. Your guide will make a final stop at Cheng Hoon Teng, the oldest traditional Chinese temple in Malaysia.
If time permits on your return, your coach will make a photo stop at Morten Village for a glimpse of a typical Malay village. Your Malacca day tour from Kuala Lumpur ends with drop-off at your hotel.
The real Malaysia!
We decided to take this day trip to Melaka and were not disappointed. It is an easy drive from KL and our guide King was wonderful. He told great stories of the history and culture of this beautiful country. We saw all the important parts of the heritage site, including a lovely lunch in a majestic heritage building which really made the day special. Seeing the old port, the beautiful temples and the way the community mixes so many cultures so easily was really interesting. Would really recommend this trip
