Travelling to Malacca, Malaysia

April 21, 2014

Melaka, dubbed "The Historic State" is the third smallest Malaysian state, located in the southern region of the Malay Peninsula, next to the Straits of Malacca. The capital is Malacca City, this historical city centre has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 7 July 2008. ~ source wiki

Malacca, Malaysia Travel Guide
Are you someone more inclined into history and culture? Perhaps Malacca in Malaysia is the perfect travel destination for you if you're looking for a quick weekend away from all the stress accumulated from work. I was so amused to find out that the city was so culture and history rich. Take note most of the popular tourist destinations are within a walking distance with no entrance fees. Don't forget to ask for a map from the hotel. It would usually take a day or a half to scour the area. It's definitely one of the recommended travel destinations for a quick weekend away.


It would usually take 3 - 4 hours bus ride from Singapore to Malacca depending on traffic conditions. I remember buying a deal when we visited the place for back and forth bus transfers and hotel stay in Malacca but you can check out bus schedules from Konsotium Express and Tours Pte Ltd.
