ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Putra Mosque, Putrajaya, Wilayah PersekutuanFacing the scenic Putrajaya Lake, the Putra Mosque is arguably Putrajaya's most distinctive landmark and one of the most modern mosques in the world. A showcase of how mosque designs have evolved in Malaysia, Putra Mosque's Islamic-architecture artistically blends traditional designs, local craftsmanship and the use of indigenous materials. The mosque is modeled after Persian Islamic architecture of the Safavid period with elements derived from other Muslim cultures. Incorporating Malaysian, Persian and Arab-Islamic architectural designs, the main entrance to the mosque is fashioned in the likeness of public building gates in Muslim PersiaDuration: 1 hourStop At: Chinese TempleCheng Hoon Teng Temple is one of the most notable landmarks in Malacca. Set near the Hindu temple Sri Pogyatha Vinoyagar along Jalan Hang Lekiu (in Jonker Street) this Chinese temple is billed as the oldest Buddhist place of worship in the country. Built in 1646, it is also known as the ‘Merciful Cloud Temple’. The temple is dedicated to Kuan Yin, Goddess of Mercy. A black, gold and red-robed statue of the goddess stands in the central prayer hall. Cheng Hoon Teng temple was constructed by Chan Lak Koa, son-in-law to Captain Li, Malacca’s second Chinese Kapitan (a mediatory position created by the Dutch East India Company which made it possible for a non-white to govern Malacca’s diverse ethnic communities.)Duration: 1 hourStop At: Jonker Street, Melaka, Central Melaka District, Melaka StateJonker Street – the center street of Chinatown that has clothing and crafts outlets as well as restaurants. The best part of Jonker Street is the night market on Fridays and Saturdays that sells everything from tasty treats to cheap keepsakes.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Christ Church, Melaka, Central Melaka District, Melaka StateChrist Church built by the Dutch when they took possession of Malacca from the Portuguese, it's one of Malacca’s most defining structures. Situated along Jalan Gereja (also known as Church Street) it is an instantly recognizable brick-red building with a huge white cross at the top. Sitting opposite the Stadhuys, Christ Church was built in 1753 to celebrate a century of Dutch occupation. The interior of the cathedral has 20-year-old handmade pews, decorative fanlights and plaques that honor Dutch soldiers and localsDuration: 30 minutesStop At: St. Paul's Hill & Church (Bukit St. Paul), Melaka, Central Melaka District, Melaka StateThe ruins of St. Paul’s Church are at the summit of St. Paul's Hill. Built on the site of the last Malaccan sultan’s Istana (palace), it was constructed by Portuguese fidalgo (nobleman) captain, Duarte Coelho, in gratitude to the Virgin Mary for saving his life during a storm at sea. Roofless and covered in ferns, it was originally called the Nossa Senhora da Annunciada (Our Lady of the Annunciation). Though it has been in ruins for more than 150 years, it is a beautiful, breezy sanctuary (reached after a steep flight of stairs) set near the remains of A’ Famosa Fort.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: A' Famosa Water Theme Park, Melaka, Central Melaka District, Melaka StateA’Famosa is more than just a quick photo stop opportunity for tourists. Built in 1511, the settlement used to sprawl across a whole hillside but now only a lone gate (Porta de Santiago) remains. One of the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia; it is set beside the Istana ke Sultanan on Jalan Kota. A’Famosa is perhaps Malacca’s best known sightseeing spot. Originally constructed by Alfonso de Albuquerque (who led the Portuguese invasion on the Malacca Sultanate), the remains of the fort is now a crumbling whitewashed gatehouse and is located downhill from St. Paul’s Church.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Malacca Trishaw Service, Melaka, Central Melaka District, Melaka StateTrishaw rides can be rather pricey as it’s a tourism product but think about it, it is easier and more enjoyable to check out Malacca. Some of the trishaws come fully equipped with sound systems and PA speakers so as the rider takes the customers around, you can hear music coming out from the trishaw.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Malacca River WalkThe Melaka River Cruise is a great way to see the sights of Melaka at a leisurely pace, in comfort and without breaking the bank.The Melaka River is where the town began and it has played a key role in Melaka's colorful history. Taking a river cruise is like seeing Melaka from the back door.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Melaka Straits Mosque, Melaka, Central Melaka District, Melaka StateThe Malacca Straits Mosque is one of the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia. It is also known as Masjid Selat Melaka as it is located on the busiest and longest straits. It is built on a man-made island, Pulau Melaka. When the tide is high, the mosque looks like it is floating in the ocean. The opening ceremony was done by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Syed Sirajuddin Syed Putra Jamalullail on 24 November 2006. The driveway scenery was breathtaking as you get to see the full coast of Malacca city. Duration: 30 minutes
