Malacca, a former Portuguese, Dutch and British colony just celebrated its fourth anniversary as a UNESCO World Heritage site in July.
Only about a four-hour drive from Singapore, Malacca is an ideal weekend destination with sights like Saint Paul’s Church, Bukit China (the largest Chinese cemetery outside the mainland) and Jonker Street’s antique shops to explore. Stay at The Sterling if you want to stay close to the heart of the Malacca’s heritage zone.
The charming colonial-style hotel has 37 rooms and the city’s only rooftop restaurant. The eco-friendly establishment also boasts a rain water collection tank and solar panels for energy. Rooms are available from RM350 (S$143).
