After a Kuala Lumpur hotel pickup, travel south in a comfortable, air-conditioned motorcoach for a full day of sightseeing in Malacca City on the Malay Peninsula's southwest coast.

Begin with a visit to the Stadthuys, a historical landmark structure located in the heart of Malacca City in the Red Square. Then take in a panoramic view of Malacca City and the surrounding region from the top of St. Paul’s Hill, which features historic St. Paul’s Church, the oldest church building in Malaysia and Southeast Asia and part of the Malacca Museum Complex.

Enjoy a traditional Malaysian lunch at a local eatery, then follow the guide to Jonker Street, the center street 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 Southeast Asia, and stop at Cheng Hoon Teng, a Chinese temple practicing the Three Doctrinal Systems of Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism.

Pause for a photo at Porta de Santiago before hiking to the ruined church on St. Paul's Hill.

It wasn’t quite what we expected

We were excited to visit Malacca and get some of the history, but honestly you should take two days to see the city. Our poor guide had to deal with some difficult and rather demanding people on our tour. They lagged behind and ultimately prevented us from getting a few extra minutes of shopping in. The history was interesting but everyone was so scattered it was difficult to hear it all. We felt rushed. It was a lot of look at that place, but we don’t get to go inside. We went into just one temple for maybe 10 minutes and then left for KL. It wasn’t a horrible tour but we certainly wish we would have stayed overnight.

Not an exciting visit

The driver picked us up and drove for hours to Malacca. He suggested to take tri-cycles as my mother-in-law is over 80. We hired two tri-cycles, MYR 45 for each. That was really expensive; didn't know that time. They showed us 12 different places they would take. Found out there are only 3 places. At each place, there are 4 different things to visit. Each thing we visited was not that exciting. And, all 3 places are very close. My mother-in-law said she could walk faster than the tri-cycle she rode because the old guy who drove was not strong enough; took way longer than it should. Lunch was in small restaurant. Food was okay, not excellent. The day was too hot to walk around in Chinatown. Didn't have great time, but okay.

The guide provided the history of the area but little enthusiasm. Really just a driver.The tour should leave earlier to avoud peak hour traffic.Lunch was terrible, just generic sweet and sour chinese food. We all wanted local authentic! Everything before lunch waste of time. 1hour in the old area.

Would not pick me up at the hotel I had on my voucher. Hilton KL. Had to take a taxi on a different tour I took with the same group a day earlier. Decided not worth the effort of getting another taxi for this tour in rush hour traffic. Just didn't go. Wrote the cost off as a learning experience.
