Price from: £299pp
Malacca 2 nights
Day 1 KL/Malacca: Depart from your KL hotel for a scenic journey south to the delightful port of Malacca (approximately 2 hours drive). On the way see rubber and oil plantations, paddy fields and quaint Malay “kampongs” with houses built on stilts. On arrival, the rest of the day is free, so why not head out and take in the laid-back atmosphere, views of historical buildings and watch as the zany trishaws zip by.
Day 2 Malacca: This morning, set off on a Malacca city tour, visiting Dutch Square, which dates back to 1650; St Paul Hill; Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, Malacca’s oldest Taoist temple; and includes a stroll through the “antique row” of Jalan Hang Jebat. The afternoon is then free to explore as you choose. Perhaps hail a trishaw and hop aboard for a thoroughly entertaining ride or maybe take a cruise along the Melaka River. Alternatively, return to Jalan Hang Jebat for further time to browse the shops or, if antiques aren’t your thing, you’ll find a modern complex adjoining the Swiss-Garden. Alternatively, why not treat yourself to a spa treatment at The Majestic Malacca
Day 3 Malacca/KL: Your tour concludes with a return journey to KL.
Departures: Daily from Kuala Lumpur. Minimum two passengers.
Accommodation: In deluxe rooms at your choice of the Swiss-Garden or The Majestic Malacca.
Room upgrades: Executive suites at the Swiss-Garden, which offer a separate lounge area.
Tour price: The prices shown are based on the best value travel dates in low season and include transfers from KL to Malacca, accommodation at your chosen hotel and sightseeing as outlined on day 2.
Ideally located overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage zone, the Swiss-Garden adjoins a shopping complex and is within 15 minutes walk of famous Jalan Hang Jebat.
