On arrival in the World Heritage–listed town, see highlights such as the Baba-Nyonya heritage homes along Heeren Street, and learn how Chinese and Malay traditions merged to form what is known today as Baba-Nyonya culture. View Jonker Street's quaint storefronts, the Dutch architecture of the Stadthuys (or Red Square), and the sites of St. Paul's Church and the fort of A Famosa, both of which date back to Portuguese times. The city is host to Malaysia's oldest Chinese and Hindu temples as well as the country's oldest Catholic church. Taste the unique flavors of Malaccan snacks while exploring the old streets of the city where Malacca's traditional trades endure despite the city's rapid modernization.
