Your first full day in Malaysia starts off with a tour of the historic city of Melaka. Your city tour will take you through the heart of Old Town, with its unique mixture of Portuguese, Dutch, Islamic and Chinese architecture. Don’t miss the fabled streets of Chinatown, or the Portuguese-influenced St. Paul’s Church, reached by a breezy climb up Bukit St Paul.
