After pickup in Kuala Lumpur, your day trip starts with the approximate 2-hour drive to Malacca City, where you’ll first visit Stadthuys, a remnant of the city’s Dutch history built in 1650.
Next, head up to St Paul’s Hill for a view of the city and to see St Paul’s Church, which dates back to 1521, making it one of the oldest churches in Southeast Asia. Take a break for lunch (own expense) before continuing your tour to Jonker Street, located in Chinatown and known for its abundant shopping opportunities. Browse antique shops and craft outlets for gifts and souvenirs, and perhaps try a dessert known as chendol, shaved ice with red beans, coconut milk, palm sugar and green jelly.
Visit the ruins of A Famosa, a Portuguese fortress and one of the oldest remains of European architecture in the region. Make a stop at Cheng Hoon Teng, a Chinese temple that practices three doctrines: Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. Your day trip then ends with the drive back to Kuala Lumpur.
