Approximately 2 hours south of Kuala Lumpur is historical Malacca, the third smallest state in Malaysia and one of the oldest, and most strategic, trading ports in Malaysia which has undergone Portuguese, Dutch and English rule. Visit St. Paul's Hill for a panoramic view of Malacca and its straits as well as the old town of Bandar Hilir.
View the famous gateway, the well known Portuguese Fort de Santiago and the ruins of St. Paul's Church lined by 17th century Dutch tombstones. Malacca is most well-known for its food. Most notable of all is the Nyonya-Baba cuisine which is a mixture of Chinese and Malay cooking with most dishes which are spicy in nature. You will enjoy a local lunch (included) before taking a stroll along the 'Antique Row' in Jonker Street.
On the way back to Kuala Lumpur you will stop by the Cheng Hoon Teng, the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia, to view Kampong Kling, a typical Malay village.
well organised,good commentary,and plenty of time to view everything. with the lunch I was a bit disappointed because I Do not eat fish or chicken.
Pickup was prompt with a very informative and friendly guide who was a font of information, with several stops on the way explaining about the conditions that villages lived under. He was also an excellent guide around malacca with a vast amount of information about the history of the area.
