Duration: 8 1/2 hours

Tour Code: KUL-004

Explore the rich, centuries-old history of Malacca during this memorable, full-day journey through the city's glorious and colorful past.

Depart the pier for the scenic, 2-hour drive along the modern highway to Malacca. This history of Malaysia emanates from Malacca. Parameswara, an exiled Malay Hindu prince from Sumatra, founded this intriguing city in 1400.

Upon arrival in Malacca, a visit will be made to St. Peter's Church, the oldest Christian church still in use in Malaysia. From here, you will proceed to the Stadhuys and commence the walking portion of your tour. You will walk to St. Paul's Hill, then continue on to A'Famosa before re-boarding your coach again for the transfer to the Baba and Nyonya Museum. During your guided tour, you will have an opportunity to view the heirlooms unique to the heritage of Malacca.

Next, you will proceed for an International Buffet lunch in the Equatorial Hotel or similar. After lunch, a visit will be made to Jonker Street, a haven for antique collectors and bargain hunters. Authentic artifacts and relics, some dating as far back as 300 years, can be found

among a host of interesting collectibles, each with its own history.

Following your visit, you will rejoin your coach for the return drive to the pier.

Please note: Due to heavy traffic conditions, the tour itinerary is subject to change. Conservative dress is required when visiting the mosque; shorts and sleeveless shirts are not permitted inside. This tour involves approximately 2 hours of walking, with 80 steps to negotiate. The drive from the pier to Malacca is approximately 2 hours in each direction.
