go KL lar, only 45 minutes more driving. more food more shopping and more night spots to hang around.

malacca a bit less bustle.

Check my VT page on Melaka.

KL is OK but does not have the charm of Melaka.

Depends on what you want. If it is shopping, movies, Petronas Towers, KL Tower and all that, KL is OK. Just that the jams might drive you crazy.

Melaka is more historical. Jonkers has night market. Quaint boutique hotels and a more distinct cuisine if you know where to find Portuguese food.

I'll be travelling to Melaka this Sat for a daytrip.

Will be going to Mahkota Parade Shopping Centre and the new S/c opposite it.

U can try visiting the A'famosa Waterpark.

http://www.afamosa.com/main.php

Makan-wise, u can try visiting the many many seafood stalls at Umbai. It's at the Pulau Besar Jetty.

As for toll, it should be around RM 55.70 from causeway to Ayer keroh.

You can use the toll calculator on the PLUS Webbie.

If this will be your 1st long trip to m'sia....I think Melaka will be a better choice. Shorter journey, easier to get into town, pace is slower, etc....

word of caution:

-Like most parts of msia, Melaka has a good record of floods.
if you are kia-su like me and wouldnt want to wake up in an ocean of water (with your ride in it), choose a hotel that has multi-storey carpark - Renaissance is good.

Tips:

-Like you, it was my 'virgin' trip to Melaka. The good thing is that I have my GPS with me. It can be pretty tiring, but not impossible, to walk the town of Melaka - the thing is, the streets are One-Way. So having a GPS with an updated map is thumbsup.gif

Melaka is know for their brown sugar - Gula Melaka. So do try their Cheng-do if you can.. there is one in Jonker street that is pretty famous (Sorry i forgot the name, try google)

There is a Teochew Seafood restaurant that is also well-known in town.. Teo.. something loong.. sweatdrop.gif

Have a good trip!

I just went a few months back. For the food. Stayed at Holiday Inn. New and nice, depending on your budget.

Drive is short, about two hours if very leisurely at 110 km/h (after crossing checkpoint).

Alot of good peranakan food there. Really much finer (and cheaper) cuisine there compared to Singapore. Do a search on Google about the makan. Many places to eat: Peranakan, Chinese, Portugese. The shopping there can actually be missed. The "new" shopping centre has a giant. But there's really nothing much to see, shopping wise, IMO.

Car is considered as "class 1". Therefore, it should be only RM27.70 and not RM55.70.

song! laugh.gif

i intend to go there den source for hotel. prolly settle for seri costa, but if it looks to shabby den prolly i will settle for smth better. my gf and me place a quite high emphasis on hotels.esp their toilets. tongue.gif normally we're willing to pay abit more to enjoy the comfort.

so go there den anyhow whack, bring a map along den find our way around. so far, so many times i travel around also no prob. just that sometims will lose our way. but i do have a mentality, as long as my car still have petrol den no prob liao. dunno the road just go slow. go wrong nvm take it as learn new route, if not ask people.

jus wanna know where to go.

so far i only tried drive all the way to genting. that wasnt that difficult cuz i have my dad beside, and we switch drivers every now and den. but melaka is my virgin trip alone up north. not to mention all the petrol trips. which is quite straight forward. scholar.gif
