We visited the area as part of the free Visitors Centre walking tours. The guide explained the background to what we were looking at. However, even without a guide, there is enough information posated that you can learn about the place on your own.

The visit to St. Paul's hill was a pleasant surprise There is a nice insight into some of the history in Melaka with some great views of the surrounding area and a chance to see some of the great architecture in the area

This place is easy to find just 300m away from the Clock Tower. It is a little hill with the remain of the ruin. However from the hill, you can have a good glimpse of Malacca.

One of the historical ruin. Warning: short climb needed. Quite tough if you have not been exercising for awhile. A good view to the state in Melaka!

Lots of steps to walk up but the view from the top is worth it. Some interesting traders on the way up and also at the top.

In a city often stifling in hot and muggy weather, St. Paul's Church on the hill provides a nice break with its fresh breeze and shade. Worth the climb to see where the Malacca Strait empties into the sea.

Parking is not on site, but at the bottom of the hill is where the journey starts. Again similar history to lots of attractions in Melaka, with occupancy by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. Steeped in history, the church is the oldest in the Far East, but deterioration has set in over the years making interior and exterior viewing all... More
