Christ Church, Melaka

4.2
The oldest functioning Protestant church in Malaysia, Christ Church also represents a well-preserved example of Dutch colonial architecture. The building's facade features a large white cross and the words "Christ Church Malaka" emblazoned across it in white. Walk inside this 18th-century shrine to see its simple rectangular interior with 200-year-old pews. Look up at the ceiling rising 12 m (40 ft) above you, spanned by sturdy wooden beams cut from a single tree. The tombstones incorporated into the floor belong to Portuguese and Armenian Catholics, moved there from a nearby church during the Dutch occupation.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
