Cruise to Malacca, Malaysia

Malacca is a small, but thriving city that offers a fusion of culture, food, history and the arts. Its colonial past is still evident in the Dutch, Portuguese and English architecture. Wander around Dutch Square and check out Queen Victoria's Fountain or Christ Church. Jump onboard a Malaysia cruise to Malacca and venture further out of town for a semi-panoramic view of the city at St. Paul's Cathedral, which is home to a spooky Portuguese cemetery. Wander through the gravestones and peer into the past through ancient inscriptions. Malacca is the perfect place to step back in time while enjoying all the trimmings of a modern city.
