Shopping and sightseeing go hand in hand on this tour, and you’ll start with a bit of both at red-tinted Dutch Square. Browse the souvenir stores, and grab a picture or two of the century-old Queen Victoria’s Fountain. Next, you’ll get a taste of Malacca’s seafaring history. You’ll see a hundred-foot replica of the Flor de la Mar – a 16th-century Portuguese ship – which is perched beside the waterfront. Drive along colourful Jonker Street on your way to the Puri Hotel, where you’ll stop for traditional Malay cakes and a cup of tea or coffee. To round things off, your guide will take you to the Malacca Straits Mosque – a modern place of worship that looks like it’s floating on the water.
