A historical piece of Melaka's history. It is n easy walk to the top but good walking shoes would be ideal. There is not really much to see at the top, so please dont expect a breath taking view. There are historical relics at the top which I found interesting, but others may not. Morning or late evening is the best time to visit when it's slightly cooler.

Give your legs some exercise and take a trip up the hill. You get a decent view of the harbour and some nice photo opportunities with the canons, ruined church. I didn't visit any of the museums as I went too late, but they may well be interesting for short visits if you have time to kill - quite a few different ones - Islamic museum, youth museum, literature. There are loads of tourists and you may well get great light and nice pictures at sunset (I was there a bit earlier)

Very peaceful spot and it is basically where many European residents were buried. Loved it as I'm a history kinda person but it doesn't give much shelter to those looking for a cooler environment. No air con here.

We could see Malacca from the hill, which is quite shady. Ruins of a church landscaped this hill, along with a few graveyards of Dutch people. It's a short walk and wouldn't take more than 1 hour to go around to finish everything.

You can see the ruins of St Paul's church at the top of the hill and you also get a good view of the town from up there.
There is no lift or escalators and it is a bit of a climb getting up there, so brace yourself before going up there.
