After an early breakfast, start out on your 2-hour journey on a day trip to discover Malacca, one of the most historic of Malaysian cities. Malacca was founded by a Hindu prince in the 14th century but its strategic location on the Strait of Malacca, which was a vital route in the medieval spice trade, made it an attractive prize for European colonists. From 1511 to 1957, it was ruled first by the Portuguese, then the Dutch and finally the British, each leaving a legacy that can still be spotted today, from the ruins of A Famosa Fort to Queen Victoria’s Fountain. The result is a fascinating multi-cultural city that will captivate your heart.
On this excursion, you will visit the top attractions in Malacca. Head to the Dutch-era St John’s Fort for a panoramic view of the city - on a clear day, you can see Indonesia on the other side of the strait.

Penang or “Pulau Pinang” which means "Island of Betelnut Palms" - was once a pirates' hideout. It came under British control in 1786.
