Breathe in history at the Dutch Square

Melaka (also known as Malacca) is one of the most significant cities in Malaysia, with cultural imprints from the Dutch, British, and Portuguese colonial powers. You will be able to explore this by kicking off your tour at the Dutch Square with your professional guide. Visit the old Dutch town hall, an iconic salmon-colored structure called the Stadthuys that also used to be the governor’s residence. Today, it functions as a museum that will walk you through the painful colonial history with incredible artifacts.

Explore Melaka's Portuguese history through stunning fort ruins and enjoy a traditional lunch

After experiencing the Dutch side of town, you will walk towards A Famosa, the ruins of a Portuguese fort built in 1511. This makes it one of the oldest European structures in all of Malaysia! The stunning gate at A Famosa will take your breath away while enlightening you on the conflicts European powers had with each during the colonial era. After all the exploring, enjoy a delicious lunch made with fresh ingredients and cooked in the true Malaccan style!

Get a feel of the real Malaysia through its temples, markets, and food

After taking in Melaka's long colonial heritage, visit the Cheng Hoon Teng Taoist Temple - the oldest functioning temple in all of Malaysia. This 400-year-old temple has eloquent Chinese architecture that will blow you away with its intricacy. Afterward, you will head to the quirky Jonker market - a place to indulge in some retail therapy as you browse through unique shops that sell local souvenirs and delicacies.

Wrap up your tour with spellbinding views at Kampong

The final leg of your experience will include a scenic drive through the gorgeous countryside as you arrive at an old Malaysian fishing village called Kampong. Take in the views while diving deep into how the locals at Kampong live their daily lives.
