      Stop At: St. Peter's Church, 166, Lorong Bendahara, Kampung Bukit China, 75100 Melaka, Malaysia

      St. Peter’s Church was built by the Portuguese descendants after religious freedom was proclaimed by the Dutch over Malacca in 1702. One of its artifacts is the 1608 bell found inside the Church’s Tower. St Peter’s Church is probably the oldest “working” Catholic church in Malacca. You can see that it has the year “1710” on it and that will help you distinguish it from the other churches. It is also not a “ruin”. The statues, Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of Lourdes, deserve special mention. Non-Catholics and Catholics alike show their devotion or seek to calm their spirits merely being there. The crucified Christ on a bier is a must to see. This bier is carried in procession during Good Friday worship. The Belfry, the Bell and the stained glass panels everything is remarkable.

      Duration: 10 minutes

      Stop At: Dutch Square Or Red Square, The Stadthuys, Melaka Malaysia

      The Stadthuys is believed to be the oldest-surviving Dutch building in the East. Part of Malacca town square’s prominent Dutch colonial architecture it is a massive bright terracotta-red riverfront building that was once the official residence of Dutch governors and officers.

      Built between 1641 and 1660 on the ruins of a Portuguese fort, The Stadthuys of Malacca was the focus point of several successive governments (Dutch, Portuguese, British etc.) for over 300 years, from its completion until 1980. In 1982, Stadthuys was converted into a museum. The Stadthuys displays typical features of Dutch colonial architecture with massive walls, louvred windows and chunky doors with wrought-iron hinges.

      Duration: 15 minutes

      Stop At: St. Paul's Hill & Church (Bukit St. Paul), Jalan Kota, Melaka 75000 Malaysia

      The ruins of St. Paul’s Church are at the summit of St. Paul's Hill. Built on the site of the last Malaccan sultan’s istana (palace), it was constructed by Portuguese fidalgo (nobleman) captain, Duarte Coelho, in gratitude to the Virgin Mary for saving his life during a storm at sea.

      Roofless and covered in ferns, it was originally called the Nossa Senhora da Annunciada (Our Lady of the Annunciation). Though it has been in ruins for more than 150 years, it is a beautiful, breezy sanctuary (reached after a steep flight of stairs) set near the remains of A’ Famosa fort.

      Duration: 15 minutes

      Stop At: A Famosa, Jalan Parameswara, Bandar Hilir, 78000 Alor Gajah, Melaka, Malaysia

      Porta De Santiago (A Famosa) which translates to 'The Famous' in Portuguese is one of the few oldest surviving remnants of European architecture in the whole of Asia. It was built in 1511 under the command of Alfonso de Albuquerque. The fortress was built to consolidate their gains in Malacca after they defeated the armies of the Malacca Sultanate. At that time, the Portuguese believed that Malacca would someday become a vital port which links Portugal to the spice trade from China. The Porta De Santiago (A Famosa) that we see today was once made up of long ramparts and four major towers. One of the towers was a four-storey keep while the other housed the residence of the captain, officers' quarters and an ammunition storage room. The fort changed hands in 1641 when the Dutch successfully drove the Portuguese out of Malacca. After the Dutch got their hands on the A Famosa, they placed their company logo, the 'VOC' coat of arms about the gates of Porta De Santiago (A Famosa). 'VOC' is the abbreviation of Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie.

      Duration: 15 minutes

      Stop At: Jonker Street, Jalan Hang Jebat, Melaka Malaysia

      onker Street – the centre street of Chinatown – was once renowned for its antique shops. However over the years it has turned to clothing and crafts outlets as well as restaurants. The best part of Jonker Street is the night market on Fridays and Saturdays that sells everything from tasty treats to cheap keepsakes.

      Duration: 30 minutes

      Stop At: Melaka River Cruise, Jalan Persisiran Bunga Raya, 75100 Melaka, Malaysia

      Melaka River tour should be one of the first things to do in Melaka, so you can get an overview of the area and see which restaurant suits you best. This state has done a great job making a nice river walk a la San Antonio. It’s quiet, clean and pleasant to stroll. There is lots of good graffiti art on the buildings which adds to the atmosphere. This is a real nice touch in hectic Southeast Asia, where cramming as much stuff into tiny places seems to be the norm.

      Duration: 40 minutes

      Stop At: Melaka Straits Mosque, Jalan Pulau Melaka 8, 75000 Melaka, Malaysia

      The Melaka Straits Mosque is known as Malacca's floating mosque as it is built on stilts above the sea.

      It was officially opened by Malaysia's King on 24th November 2006. It is constructed with modern Islamic design and craftsmanship. While the main dome is Middle Eastern in appearance, the four corner turrets are topped with typical Malaysian rooflines.
