Malacca Day Trip

After being picked up from your hotel in Kuala Lumpurat 8:30 in the morning, you'll be driven to Malacca, one of Malaysia's most historic cities.

Following an approximately two hour journey, you'll arrive in the heart of Malacca, where you'll head on a guided tour of the ancient town. As you explore the former colonial city, discover the legacy of its European colonists as you visit sites such as the Porta de Santiago, a stone gatehouse which is the only remaining part of the ruined 16th-century Portuguese fortress known as A Famosa

Not far from these architectural remains, you'll reach the ruins of St Paul's Church, once home to the body of St Francis Xavier, a 16th century Spanish Roman Catholic missionary who worked in Malacca, and whose statue still stands outside the crumbling building to this day. Learn all about the saint's journeys across the world thanks to your expert guide.

Continue next to a neighbourhood of Malacca famed for its red buildings built by the Dutch colonialists who succeeded the Portuguese. Amongst the different crimson-coloured architectural delights, the Christ Church particularly stands out. Located in one of the city's prettiest squares, the 18th century Protestant church is still active to this day. The perfect place to discover more about Malacca's passionate history!

We'll then drive to Jonker Street, Malacca's shopping street, and pass by the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the oldest Buddhist shrine in Malaysia.

Having explored the best of this legendary city, take a well-deserved break at a local restaurant, where you'll enjoy a traditional Malaysian lunch. With recharged batteries, we'll end the tour with a walk along the river and from here we'll return to Kuala Lumpur.

Arrival at your hotel is scheduled for 6 pm.
