Malacca

Malacca Town is a colorful and historic city on the west coast of Malaysia. With a rich and diverse colonial history, the city boasts an impressive mix of architectural delights and is a UNESCO Heritage site. Buildings of historic value within Malacca Town include Christ Church, the oldest Protestant church in Malaysia; St. Paul’s Church, which was once a fortress and Dutch cemetery; and the Famosa Portuguese Fort, the oldest remnant of European architecture in Asia dating back to 1511. Once used as a trading port for European settlers traveling the Malacca Strait, the town is now a popular tourist destination for its beautiful buildings, great food, and antique shopping.

For 360-degree views of Malacca, head to the top of the Taming Sari Revolving Tower. The tower sends sightseers 110 meters into the air in a viewing cabin and takes just six minutes to do a full rotation. For shopping, the Peranakan-style Jonker Street is packed with market stalls were visitors can pick up antiques and one of a kind vintage items.

Malacca Town is only 150 kilometers from Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, so it's easily accessible by car, rail, or via a domestic flight arriving at Batu Berendam Airport.
