One of the major attractions in Melaka involves a small hill that goes by the name of Bukit St. Paul, “bukit”, I believe means hill in Malay. I have visited this hill before and I can say that it is interesting enough for me to remember it. Actually, when I saw the brochure for Melaka about 8 years ago, some of the structures on Bukit St. Paul were featured. This hill as it turns out, is one of the more historical points of the town.
There are several ways of going up Bukit St. Paul, one was to go through a gate where there are several museums. There is a fee to go through these gates as I would later know, or rather, as a not so respectful guard would later tell me. Another way is to go past a parking lot beside the architecture museum. There is not very prominent sign which says “Bukit St. Paul”, this set of steps though seems to be steeper than the one on the other side. Anyway, the climb was quite a pleasant one. Not too many people unlike the other entrance where all the tourists seem to be herded off to.
