Begin with early morning pickup at your Singapore hotel, Singapore airport, or cruise port depending on your wishes.
Then, relax into the leather seats of your private, air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy the drive to Malacca - the UNESCO-listed Malaysian state that was once the country’s busiest trading port. Tuck into a delicious packed breakfast box of mango juice, bottled water, and pastry. Use the onboard Wi-Fi if you wish.
On arrival, absorb the historical atmosphere and learn about the city's Dutch, Portuguese, and British colonial heritage as you take in historical St. Paul’s Church on St Paul’s Hill, St. Francis Xavier statue, the Porta De Santiago fort, 18th-century Christ Church, Malacca Clock Tower and Queen Victoria Fountain at the Dutch Square.
See the Chinese Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, and peruse the stalls and red-brick houses during a stroll along Jonker Street. Stop to sample some famous local pineapple tarts, and enjoy a cruise along the Malacca River, passing quaint colonial era villages from the 1920s, temples, Flor De La Mar ship replica and churches.
Make the scenic journey to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital. Refuel with a sumptuous lunch at a local restaurant alongside samples of Chinese Roti Bakar (toast topped with coconut jam) and coconut-milk cendol dessert, before heading to the famous Batu Caves on the edges of Kuala Lumpur. View the Hindu shrines contained within these sacred caves, and then continue into the city to the Petronas Twin Towers. Visit the observation deck of these world-famous towers for bird’s-eye city views, and admire five other must-sees of the National Palace, Sultan Abdul Samad (former supreme court and government offices of the British colonial administration), National Monument, Teras Jernang Mosque, and Independence Square (95m high flagpole with the Royal Selangor Club in the background).
Finally, head to a Malay-style food court and savor a tasty local Malay dinner of coconut-milk rice with fried chicken alongside samples of Indian Thosai (savoury pancake with sides) and Teh Tarik (pulled tea) before returning to Singapore, where your tour finishes with a hotel, port, or airport drop-off at about 9pm, depending on traffic.
Please note: in the event that the Petronas Twin Tower's observation deck is closed (ie: Muslim festivals, Mondays etc), guests will have an outdoor photo stop of the Petronas Twin Towers, and visit the KL Tower's observation deck instead.
In addition, if you are interested in staying overnight in Kuala Lumpur and exploring it independently before a next-day return to Singapore by coach, (all at additional cost), please advise at time of booking.
