We came here on a waking tour and got to see the many parts of the town which was very interesting. We walked through the river and the replica ship, the Dutch square as well as St. Paul's hill and the crypt. We also walked along the museum centre so as to see which ones we wanted to come back...

Malacca is a place of great historical significance. Conquered by the Portuguese in 1511 CE, it was the first European colony in Southeast Asia and for about 450 years without interruption under European rule. Since the verymost places in Southeast Asia have little or no history, Malacca has plenty. UNESCO World Heritage since 2008, the old town houses a lot... More

This place truly reeks history. If you like visiting such places, it is the place to go to. There is life-size statue of St.Xavier right in front of church which was bombed by the Japs.

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.
