hotel depends on budget... if wanna spend on luxury living... willing to pay ...
can try the new holiday inn... my fren went... very new very nice. v worth it.
budget u can source for budget hotel or hostel.
one motorist killed on the road, whole family sob to death....

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.

Will be going to Mahkota Parade Shopping Centre and the new S/c opposite it.
U can try visiting the A'famosa Waterpark.
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.

-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.
-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
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..
Have a good trip!

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.

I'll be travelling to Melaka this Sat for a daytrip.
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.
Car is considered as "class 1". Therefore, it should be only RM27.70 and not RM55.70.

By the way, I had already book my hotel at Everly Resort Hotel. And cost me about RM171 per night after discount. Well i had bought a discount voucher "65% discount on the actual price" at $10 from my friend.

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. 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.
