Had our morning walk up St Paul's hill today. A great scene of the 1521 Church against sun rise as backdrop. A picturesque view it was. A panaromic view of the Malacca historic city blanketed with the mirning sun ray us just majectic. A good...More

Funny to see the mix of portuguese and dutch heritage in the tombs around the church. Also impressive to see, maybe due to dutch heritage, how much the malays pushed away the sea since this church was built on the hill.

Need to climb up the stairs to get on top of the hill but worth the climb. Besides you get to exercise! You can buy survenir sold at the top of the hill.

We 'climbed' up a short distance to view St Paul's Hill and church. Nice view of the area, including that of The Ship and Malacca river in the distance. Rich history. Good picture taking place. too.

It’s a must to go when you are in Melaka. Historical structure that went through several use over time. The laterite stone it is made of is just awesome. It’s rusty color and tactile texture is amazing. Despite it being a ruin one can still...More

Atmospheric ruins with great views across Melaka. Several hawkers plying their trade, but interesting to talk to and not pushy.

This is the ruins of the oldest church in Southeast Asia. It has a long and colorful history. You can get a view of Malacca Strait from here.

We had a very poor guide who couldn't explain much of the history so the visit was somewhat tainted. Long climb up on a hot day.

Tiring climb but worth the time, always remember the first climb in the 60's during schooling days. But at this age 60 years old still wanting to get to the top. Hopefully will come back again. The view is true statisfying.

It's well worth the climb to visit St Pauls. I went during the middle of the day, which I wouldn't recommend because it was quite hot with little shade. This area is steeped in history from the Dutch settlement and worth exploring.
