Malacca Day Tour From Kuala Lumpur
Malacca is the historical state of Malaysia, rich with heritage buildings, ancient landmarks and colonial structures. It was here that colonial forces first made contact with Malaysia, which eventually shaped the country into its current economic and political system.
Today, in Malacca, you can still see the imprints of British, Dutch and Portuguese forces left behind in forts, museums, churches and towers. Visit Malacca for the cultural experience of a lifetime.

Stop At: Melaka Butterfly & Reptile Sanctuary (Taman Rama-rama & Reptilia Melaka), Lebuh Ayer Keroh, 75450 Ayer Keroh, Melaka, Malaysia
Situated approximately 15 kilometres northeast of Malacca town, the Butterfly & Reptile Sanctuary is one of the most visited attractions in Ayer Keroh. Also known as Taman Rama-Rama & Reptilia Melaka, it is home to a collection of animals ranging from beautiful butterflies to more than 20 species of snakes as well as lizards, crocodiles, colourful koi fish, not to mention a few prickly hedgehogs.
Spread across an 11ha jungle area, the complex is part secondary jungle and part landscaped park. The well-maintained sanctuary was opened in 1991 and is divided into five sections that visitors can walk through and photograph their favourite animals: the Koi River Valley, Butterfly Garden, Reptile Aviary, Wild Photo Lane and Nature’s Art Centre.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Mini Malaysia & ASEAN Cultural Park Melaka, Jalan Ayer Keroh, Melaka 75450 Malaysia
Mini Malaysia & ASEAN Cultural Park is a cultural park where impressive replicas of traditional Malaysian and ASEAN homes are built and open for visitors to explore. Similar to the Karyaneka Handicraft Centre in Kuala Lumpur, each house contains furnishings, fixtures and works of art depicting the culture of each state or country.
Located in Ayer Keroh, the Mini Malaysia & ASEAN Cultural Park showcases the country’s 13 states represented with houses that existed during pre-modern Malaysia. Inside each abode, several life-sized wax dummies dressed in respective traditional costumes as well as local handicrafts are placed on display. It is a great place for families, where kids can learn to play traditional Malay games such as congkak (a mancala game of Malay origin) or even hone their skills on an Iban blowpipe.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Melaka Straits Mosque, Jalan Pulau Melaka 8, 75000 Melaka, Malaysia
The Melaka Straits Mosque is a mosque located on the man-made Malacca Island in Malacca City, Malacca, Malaysia. The construction cost of the mosque was about MYR10 million.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: A Famosa Fort, Jalan Parameswara Bandar Hilir, 2 Min Walk from St Paul's Church, Melaka 78000 Malaysia
A’Famosa is more than just quick photo opportunity for tourists. Built in 1511, the settlement used to sprawl across a whole hillside but now only a lone gate (Porta de Santiago) remains. Originally constructed by Alfonso de Albuquerque (who led the Portuguese invasion on the Malacca Sultanate), the remains of the fort is now a crumbling whitewashed gatehouse that can be found down the hill from St. Paul’s Church.
When work was undertaken on the Menara Taming Sari revolving tower in 2006, another part of the A’Famosa was discovered. As a result, the revolving tower was relocated further inland and A’Famosa’s newly-discovered fortress walls were reconstructed. A’Famosa is set beside the Melaka Sultanate Palace on Jalan Kota and stands as one of the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: St. Paul's Hill & Church (Bukit St. Paul), Jalan Kota, Melaka 75000 Malaysia
St. Paul's Church
The ruins of St. Paul’s Church are at the summit of St. Paul's Hill. Built on the site of the last Malaccan sultan’s palace, it was constructed by Portuguese fidalgo (nobleman) captain, Duarte Coelho, in gratitude to the Virgin Mary for saving his life during a storm at sea.
Roofless and covered in ferns, it was originally called the Nossa Senhora da Annunciada (Our Lady of the Annunciation). Though it has been in ruins for more than 150 years, it is a beautiful, breezy sanctuary (reached after a steep flight of stairs) set near the remains of A’ Famosa fort. St. Paul’s Church offers breathtaking views of Malacca and there are buskers and souvenir stalls at the top of the hill; heading down on the other side leads to Porta de Santiago, the remains of the great A’ Famosa Fort.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Red Square (Dutch Square), Melaka Malaysia
Dutch Square Malacca is the most picturesque attraction located along Jalan Kota. It is also a colourful trishaw pickup point, easily distinguished by a group of bright, terracotta-red colonial Dutch buildings that were built between 1660 and 1700, as well as louvered windows and chunky doors with wrought iron hinges. A central fountain dominates the area: it is an ornate Victorian marble addition, erected in 1904 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee.
Also within Dutch Square is the Tang Beng Swee Clock Tower. Even though it looks distinctly Dutch, it was actually built by a wealthy Straits Chinese family in 1886 in honour of Tan Beng Swee, a rich Chinese merchant. A short walk down the lane to the left of Christ Church in Dutch Square leads to the overgrown remains of the Dutch Graveyard. There is also a tall column in the centre of the graveyard which is a memorial to fallen soldiers during the 1831 Naning War.
