Prepare to walk back through the centuries on your visit to Melaka Historical City, located on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
A Melaka Historical City tour will take you back through centuries of different rulers. Always a busy trading hub, Melaka Historical City has been ruled by the Portuguese, the Dutch, and the English over the last several hundred years. Each empire left its own stamp on the city, from architectural styles to cuisine. Spend an afternoon exploring the ruins of A Famosa, a fort that at one time was an emblem of Portuguese power. On the same day, spend the evening in the shadow of colorful Dutch buildings, some of which date back to the 1650s.
No matter what else you do during your Melaka Historical City sightseeing, don’t miss out on the Jonker Walk. This tour encompasses Jonker Street and the area around it, and includes the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, a 17th-century structure believed to be the oldest Buddhist temple in the country. Additionally, if you’re visiting on a Friday or Saturday evening, the Jonker Walk Night Market is the perfect place to score a bargain on local food and artwork, as well as watch talented street performers.
