Your day tour to Malacca is more exciting and meaningful if you follow the following activist list. Probably the most comprehensive itinerary covering almost all historical attraction. Every site in the list has a fascinating story/history that you did not get it online or travel book. Due to the competitor copy my content I only put a snippet about the attraction.
Malacca River Cruise
If tourist decided to follow my Malacca day trip itinerary, we start Malacca river cruise first. The reason because of less passenger on the boat. More comfortable and tourist can move around compare doing the tour in the afternoon. The boat ride about 35 – 45 minutes cruise along Malacca rivers.
Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum
Situated in Heeran street or million row during the British colonized. The first private museum in Malaysia established since 1985. The house consists of three terrace lots that were acquired by the Chan family in 1861. The Museum is the perfect place for tourist to understand Baba Nyonya culture. Baba is the male of local-born Chinese, Nyonya is the female. The title Baba and Nyonya comes from intermarriage between Chinese immigrants and local women.
Street of Harmony
We continues our Malacca day trip to street of Harmony. During Malacca established as an entrepot for herbs and spices trading. Traders from various nations come to trade introducing their culture and religion. On the street of harmony situated all three dominant religious houses of prayer on the same side next to each other. Here tourists can visit Kampung Kling Masjid, Temple of Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple. Cheng Hoon Temple is the oldest functional Chinese temple in Malaysia.
Dutch Square/ Red Square
Three main attractions in Dutch square Malacca. Christ Church, Stadhuys Building and Tan Beng Swee Clock Tower. Christ built by Dutch in 1741, fully completed in 1753. The oldest functional Protestant Church in Malaysia. When British took over Malacca from Dutch in 1795, the church was turned into an Anglican Church.
Saint Peter Church
My Malacca day trip activity is covering phenomenon and legend story. We rise to Saint Paul Hill to visit Saint Paul Church. In 1521, Portuguese Captain name Duarte Coelho built this Church after miraculously survives from pirates attack in the South China Sea. In here, tourist can see the Saint Francis Xavier statue without the right arm. Famous Italian sculptor, G. Tonini sculptured the figures.
In 1953, the phenomenon event happened casuarina tree gave way and fell on the figure. The next day when they are clearing the branches of the fallen tree, many were stunned the statue was standing without the right hand. The Saint Francis Xavier incorrupt body still laid to rest in Basilica of Bom Jesus, Goa India without the right arm. Come to join me if you like to know the more interesting story.
Culture Museum Malacca
Built in 1986, with no history drawing the replica of Sultan Malacca was developed based on artist impression. The detail of the fifteenth-century palace recorded in Malay Annals. The impressive building using quality local timber such as Chengal and Resak. In here, tourist can experience the Sultan Malacca administration system, punishing system, weapon and traditional royal costumes.
Porta de Santiago
After Portuguese captured Malacca in 1511, Alfonso instructed his people to build a fortress. The fortress works very well protecting Portuguese from Sultan of Malacca counter strike and Dutch attack. When Dutch invaded Malacca in 1641, Dutch decided to make the fort thicker and taller. In 1807, Lt Robert Farquhar wrote a letter to English East India Company in India for the destruction of the fortress. Stanford Raffles the founder of Singapore used his influence to stop British continuing destroying the fort. Today Porta de Santiago has a reputation as the oldest standing European monument in Malaysia.

Situated at Strait of Malacca, built between 2003 and 2006 with the cost of 10 million ringgit. The beautiful design of the Masjid using combination Middle Eastern and Malay craftsmanship. The main features of the Masjid are the Minaret, standing at 30 meters also functioning as the lighthouse acting as a guide for boat and ships.
