Overview

Discover Malacca on this fascinating and unique overnight excursion from Kuala Lumpur. Unesco World heritage designated, the fascinatingly multi-cultural city is the oldest in Malaysia, founded as far back as 1400 by a Malay-Hindu prince.

After establishing a healthy trade in spices Malacca quickly became one of Southeast Asia’s most important trading ports attracting Chinese immigrants and Portuguese colonialists as well as those from many other corners of the world. Today this diversity remains with different cultures and religions thriving in a calming co-existence; Taoist temples sit within the sounds of the Muezzins call to prayer from the mosque, and down the street you’ll find the oldest Malaysian Hindu temple.  With such cultural variety it is unsurprising that food is a big deal here, this is the perfect place to try new flavours with restaurants representing the best dishes of many regions.

As a trading port, the river was the cities lifeblood; on the western banks where Chinese immigrants settled, there is a wonderfully preserved maze of atmospheric streets and shophouses displaying distinct Chinese influence in the architecture. Your stay will be at the quaint Puri Hotel in the heart of Malaca, with distinct characteristics and a charming interior. On arrival day you'll take a local guided tour over the river banks, visiting ruins, churches and tombs learning about the towns fascinating cultural history and its journey to independance.
