Take a step back in time and discover over 600 years of history in the port city known as Malacca. Before the arrival of the first Sultan, Malacca was a fishing village inhabited by local Malays known as Orang Laut. Strategically located on the narrowest point of the Malacca Straits, it was soon discovered to be a good port that was easily accessible in all seasons. Join this tour to learn more about the history of this now vibrant city located just a short 1 1⁄2 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.

Upon arrival in Malacca City, there will be a stop to visit the historic St. Peter’s Church, the oldest Christian Church still in use in Malaysia. We will drive past the largest 17th Century Chinese cemetery outside of China, past the “Sultan’s Well”, and continue through the Portuguese Settlement to see the pink Dutch administrative buildings, the ruins of St. Paul’s Church, and so much more. After a lunch stop in a local restaurant, the tour continues highlighting key historical sites and concludes with a stroll along Antique Street, which ends by the banks of the Malacca River.

Be sure to wear appropriate, comfortable clothing, comfortable walking shoes, and bring your camera.
