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.

Don't just stay in KL - book a tour to Malacca. We had a private tour which meant we could see more of what we wanted to and we didn't have to wait on anyone else.
Great day out to see the historical town - the impacts of the Dutch and the Portgueuse. Definitely worth putting on your itinerary.
