Malacca, located 160 kilometers south of Kuala Lumpur, is the most important historical landmark in the country. Founded by Parameswara, a Hindu Prince from Palembang. The Portuguese, Dutch and English also ruled Malacca. The ruins and building of these conquerors can still be seen today, blending with the fast developing but careful planed township. Today you will visit St. Peter's Church (1710), the oldest Christian Church still in use in Malaysia. Drive past the largest 17th century Chinese cemetery outside of China, located at Bukit China or "Chinese Hill". Stop at the foothill to view the Sultan's Well before driving through the Portuguese Settlement. Proceed to view the famous gateway 'Porta De Santiago' and the ruins of St. Paul's Church, lined by 17th century Dutch tombstones. Next on the list is "Red Square", the salmon pink Dutch administrative buildings which today houses the Malacca Museum and government offices. Visit Christchurch before proceeding for lunch, you will then visit the "Abode Merciful Clouds" or the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the only temple where you can find 3 major doctrines of local Chinese belief under the same roof: Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism. Take a stroll along Malacca's Jonker Street, which ends by the banks of the Malacca River.
