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 of 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.

Getting There

It would usually take a 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.
