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.

The history of St. Paul Hill reflects the colonial past of Malaysia and the drama that occurred between the groups of Europeans who came to control the land, vault and all. This church's significance as the oldest church built in South East Asia is noted....More

My first visit was 4 years ago. It's a short hike up the stairs to reach the hill top. I was hoping to see the old busker, stringing his guitar singing in his beautiful voice. Alas he was no where to be found. Instead, there...More
