This is a full day trip covering the historical city of Malacca. Start the day at the Melaka Submarine Museum, and spend the next 8 hours visiting the many popular landmarks of Malacca such as A Famosa, Cheng Hoon Teng, Jonker Street and the Dutch Square.
What’s more, you also get to savour a traditional Nyonya lunch as you take a break from all the touring. To end the day, enjoy a scenic cruise by boat at the Melaka River, before returning to your hotel.
Visitors get the chance to see a submarine up close and even enter inside to witness the living and working conditions of submariners. The SMD Ouessant, an Agosta 70 class submarine which was built in 1978 by Arsenal de Cherbourg in France is an electric and diesel powered non-nuclear submarine. Similar submarines have been used by the Spanish and Pakistani navies. Now the submarine is propped up on steel supports on dry land and is open to the public as a one of a kind museum.
Dutch Square Malacca is the most picturesque area along Jalan Kota. It’s a colourful trishaw pickup point, which was built between 1660 and 1700, with louvered windows and chunky doors with wrought iron hinges. It reflects the history of Melaka, the Dutch administration (the Stadthuys, Christ Church), the British colonization and the Chinese settlers. The Portuguese traces remain at A Famosa. But you can see some ruins of Portuguese fortress on the bank of River Melaka across the Square. What you will like about Red Square it is the carnival like atmosphere where you will find many tourists and locals. The souvenir shops are crowded with souvenirs hunters and the vibrant colourful trishaws are ever enticing tourists with their blaring hit songs. This area is extremely photogenic, so make sure your camera batteries are fully charged.
Next is, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple which is one of the most notable landmarks in Malacca. Set near the Hindu temple along Jalan Hang Lekiu (in Jonker Street) this Chinese temple is billed as the oldest Buddhist place of worship in the country. Built in 1646, it is also known as the ‘Merciful Cloud Temple’. Another famous place to explore is the Jonker Street. This is definitely a shopping hotspot crowded by the tourists and locals alike. A shopaholics dream, Jonker Walk is where you will find shops still standing strong since the pre-war times. Besides some of the most beautiful antiques, you can also find locally-made products. A list of famous shops are the Orang Utan House, San Shu Gong, Pineapple Tarts House and Abdul Antiques.
