Last December I went to Malacca from Kl on a private tour. Only 02 of us went and the driver was very good. We visited a number of places and the place I enjoyed most was the Maritime Museum. It is a place you must visit. If you go to Malacca by bus from KL , one option of going... More

We did this tour with Asian Overland Tours, the previous one we had done was very good and enjoyable. This one was not. The Driver/Guide did not speak much English and was not able to answer our questions about the area. Driving in to Malacca is just like any other town/City shops, houses etc when we arrived at the Heritage... More

Very poor remembrances of the ancient times. No preservation done but to much of new shops without blending in with the old scenario. Tourist information was good but please learn to speak English and don't expect tourist to learn our language. Very bad for Tourist. Maybe those who can speak were on holiday!

The history here is very interesting. But be prepared to take awhile to read it all and do not take anyone with you who gets bored easily.

If you are interested in history or culture, this is the place for you! Personally, i love this place. As a matter of fact, I wake up early in order to see the details of the heritage center. Walking alone in the center is like owning the whole heritage center. Nothing can get your attention except the whole of the... More

Took a 2 hour van trip from KL and Malacca and quite enjoyed it. The Heritage Centre is nice and quite quaint. It was clean and rich culturally but felt a bit too manufactured maybe because everything was freshly painted. The church on the top of the hill was beautiful and you could see the strait of malacca from there.... More

Its history and architecture are worth of your time and money to go there. At least a day trip to discover the beauty of Malacca and enjoying the food there is a must, especially the dishes from nyonya. A cruise along the Strait of Malacca will bring you to a part of Malysia history, tell you a story of how... More

The best place to understand the rich past of this historical city. Well decorated and furnished, it is a dive in the life of Chinese immigrants who married local women and started the great Perenakan culture ! A must see for everyone !
