TOURIST INFORMATION

History of "Melaka" (Malacca)

Approximately 2 hours south of Kuala Lumpur is historical "Melaka"Malacca,  the oldest trading port in Malaysia which has undergone Portuguese, Dutch and English rule.

The Historical "Melaka"Malacca our brings you from Kuala Lumpur to Malaysia’s historical city where you’ll catch some amazing sights of heritage buildings and ancient landmarks. We start with a visit to St. Peter’s Church which was built in 1710, the oldest in the country that is still being used today. Then, we drive past the 17th Century Chinese Hill before stopping at its foothill to view the Sultan’s well before driving through a Portuguese settlement.

Travel back into the pass 600 years as you visit "Melaka"Malacca city. Drive pass Bukit China and visit the famous gateway of the Portuguese fortress "A Formosa" (Porta De Santiago), built in 1511. Climb St Paul Hill for a panoramic view of Malacca and its straits and the old town of Bandar Hilir. See the ruins of St. Paul’s Church that is lined with 17th Century Dutch tombstones, where St. Francis Xavier was once buried and the Red Square – a salmon pink Dutch administrative building called 'Stadhuys' that now houses the Malacca Museum and government offices. We then visit Christchurch before breaking for lunch, then resuming with a trip to the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the oldest active temple in the country. Finally, we take a stroll along Jonker Street, a heritage street lined with shop houses where you can buy antiques that ends at the banks of the Malacca River.

Genting Highland

An excellent day trip possibility, Genting Highlands is a cool hill station set amidst the cool mountain air and a majestic 100 million-year-old rainforest.

Cameron Highland

A good place to cool off after you’ve explored Malaysia’s forests, beaches and lowlands, Cameron Highlands is a salubrious and cool hill station located along the Pahang borders. It’s not as glamorous and glitzy as Genting Highlands – the ‘City of Entertainment’ – yet the town manages to attract its fair share of visitors. More information can be found HERE.
