Malaysia: Drive up to Malacca

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have planned for a one day drive up to Malacca in Dec'09.
Any tips? Like good food or safe carpark to park my ride.
I 'am thinking of parking it at hotel.
Your contribution will be much appreciated

Parking at malacca is generally quite safe. I always park at road side at Jonker St (day time), Dataran Pahlawan and parking lots behind Red Building and the big parking lots at A-Formosa.

Assuming that we are setting off from Tuas 2nd link, what would be the total toll charges for the whole trip to Malacca?

Would the return trip toll charges be the same?

its more or less the same. I cant remember but I think 80rm per trip should be more than enuff.

Puri hotel is the nearest but not so budget. I think the next nearest is Hallmark hotel (Budget hotel), have good guests review too. Parking is just in front of hotel and beside. Planning go malacca at next weekend, stayed hallmark b4 and would like try other budget hotel.

fenix is not bad, across the road is shopping mall and cineplex. small carpark with very friendly valet parking (free) and very secure as they usually chained up the carpark after they park. one advice though, dont get those rooms without windows as they can be quite claustrophobic.

if stay at hallmark, must try the tim sum at the end of the building next to the hotel - yummy & very cheap! available morning and late morning only. the zi zhar (nite only) along the same building also not bad and reasonably priced - enjoy. the parking at hotel may be a little tight now becos of increased guests. hotel within walking distance to Tong Hup (wholesaler).

Tong Hup sells all sorts of stationery in bulk (like by the dozen) from color pencils, glue, whiteout, to drawing boards, envelopes, paper rims, etc for office as well as school use. they also carry shampoo, facial products, for cleaning your face to detergent for cleaning kitchen wall. underwear, coveralls, school uniforms, shoes, sandals, umbrellas, all kinds of kitchen wares like cutlery, utensils, crockery and plates. even guitars and toys, groceries. worth a visit and buying due to our favorable exchange rate. as mentioned by AOOI, its the street behind Hallmark - can walk there. they close early though, around 6pm.
