Melaka, Malaysia

Hello and Selamat Datang!!! My name is Lingam and I am a certified tourist guide under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia.

Upon retirement from the government service, I decided to undertake a tourism course and little did I know that the passion and enthusiasm would be ongoing for 11 years and counting. My main focus is in the UNESCO Heritage city of Melaka. In a city rich with heritage and history, it takes a guide who is also rich in knowledge and experience to deliver 600 years of influence and diversity.
I love meeting with different groups of people of various backgrounds and culture. While Melaka is known for its historical sites, let me also take you off the beaten path to old villages and plantations to experience a different way of life, where time travels at a slower pace. The orchards and farms will be a good exposure to a myriad of fruits to beat the heat.
Melaka has it ALL-history, food and a sense of belonging. It is my job to deliver the best and only the best of Malaysia and Melaka to the world.
'Melaka is not just a place, but a new way to experience life'.

A Recent Review of this guide

We enjoyed our tour with Amirthalingam (Lingham) very much. He had so many interesting stories and was obviously very passionate about his work. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone planning to go to Malaka. Thank you.
