What to Expect
After a Kuala Lumpur hotel pick-up, you can relax in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach that will transfer you for a full day of sightseeing in Malacca City, on the Malay Peninsula's southwest coast. The tour begins with a visit to the Stadthuys, a historic landmark structure located in the heart of Malacca City, on the Red Square. Then take in a panoramic view of the city and surrounding region from the top of St. Paul’s Hill, which features the historic St. Paul’s Church, the oldest church building in South-East Asia, and part of the Malacca Museum Complex.
After a break for lunch (at your own expense), follow the guide to Jonker Street, the center of Chinatown. Once renowned for its antique shops, Jonker Street now features clothing and craft outlets as well as restaurants. Finally, visit the A Famosa fortress, which is among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in South-East Asia, and stop at Cheng Hoon Teng, a Chinese temple practicing the Three Doctrinal Systems of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism. The tour ends with a return trip to Kuala Lumpur.
