This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan

Pick up from your hotel centrally located at Kuala Lumpur City Centre. Journey to Melaka from Kuala Lumpur approximately 2 hours


Stop At: Melaka, Melaka, Central Melaka District, Melaka State

Malacca is the unofficial historical capital of Malaysia, serving as a link between east and west for over 500 years. It was here that colonial forces first made contact with Malaysia, which eventually shaped the country into its current economic and political system. Today, Malacca is a beautiful city that's rich with heritage buildings, ancient landmarks and colonial structures.

You can still see the imprints of British, Dutch and Portuguese forces left behind in forts, museums, churches and towers. Many people are impressed with Malacca’s laidback atmosphere and lost-in-time feel. Life goes by at a leisurely pace with independent restaurants, cafes occupying Chinese shopfronts, and traditional Malay villages. Jalan Hang Jebat, or Jonker Walk, is a complete delight to walk through, as centuries-old shop-houses still stand proudly, selling anything from attractive antiques to one-of-a-kind local produce.

The third house of worship is Kampung Kling Mosque, which is not the oldest mosque in Malaysia (that honor belongs to Masjid Kampung Hulu, also in Malacca and built by the Dutch in 1728), but it was finished back in 1868 and is notable for its pagoda-like architecture.

We spent time in an historic city so on the way to Mallaca and returning, we spent a lot of time discussing the history of SE Asia over many hundreds of years. Maran was excellent and knows so much about ensuring the customer has the best experience possible… and I did, recommend to others!!

Overall we had a good day. Malaka is an interesting city to visit. This was not a ‘guided tour.’ We were given some information about Malaka by the driver on the ride from Kamala Lumpur, then he pointed out several places we could go, and we went around on our own in the town. Malaka is very hot, so be prepared with water, hat/umbrella, etc. The included lunch was a miss. We arrived at the appointed time & place, but there were no available tables. After waiting about 10 minutes in the heat, we ended up leaving to have lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe to access good air conditioning, but higher price & not the local food we were looking for.
