This morning, your ‘Local Specialist’ reveals the seamless fusion of Portuguese, Dutch, British and Malay influences that have shaped the UNESCO-listed historic city of Malacca. Embark on an informative walking tour past Dutch Square with its Stadhuys and clock tower, reflecting the multi-cultural heritage of this once vibrant trading port. Ascend to the top of Malacca Hill, and then stroll along the river to Kampung Kuli where you’ll discover colourful shopfronts displaying traditional crafts.
This afternoon, enjoy a leisurely cruise along the Malacca River, sailing past historic buildings, old godowns (warehouses), churches and villages. After a day of exploration, enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants (Portuguese Seafood Cuisine).
