Double Decker Bus
SIngapore to Melacca
Can anyone confirm that there is a Plusliner bus leaving Singapore for Melacca that departs from the Singapore Copthorne Orchid Hotel,Dunearn Street?
Plusliner Bus Services web site does not list one.
If not, where is the easiest place to catch a bus to Melacca without dealing with the crowds?
Singapore to Melacca
Vanakam, I have a feeling that Plusliner does not do the Malacca route, because there are many operators for this, & they won't reap any extra economies of scale for doing this.
Plusliner tends to do the longer haul routes like KL or further.
For Malacca, I suggest you try either Konsortium Express or Grassland Express (at Golden Mile Shopping Centre, Beach Road); alternatively, try the Singapore-Malacca Express from Lavender (the car park opposite S'pore casket Company).
However, you may need to book 2 weeks in advance for the latter.
The best thing to do is to take either CW1 or CW2 (Kranji & Queen Street respectilvely) across the Causeway to Larkin Terminal in Johore, where there are luxury coaches leaving every hour to various parts of Malaysia. Ticket from there should not cost you more than MYR 20/-.
Hope this helps, cheers.
Re: SIngapore to Melacca
if you want less hassles, take the direct bus rather than MRT/bus/rude conductors and day travellers without manners and pushing and shoving/and getting to larkin /finding the right bus etc..
i have taken direct buses from golden mile complex (morning departures only) and the convenient singapore malacca express from lavendar road.. both are recommended. better to take a direct one especially if you have more than a little luggage.. Enjoy Malacca, lovely place to be ..
Travel Tips for Melaka
The Stadthuys - The house of The Governors
The red building, Stadthuys was once the official residence of the Dutch Govenors and officers.
The Stadthuys was built around the 1600s. Believed to be the oldest Dutch building in Asia, it has incredibly weighty doors and pleasant louvred window, all the characteristic features of Dutch colonial architecture.
It is now a historical site to many tourist and houses the Museum of History and Ethography - worth going in to see some old stuff - old plates, maps etc.
Suncream can be one of the most usful things you could probably bring to Melaka. When going through all the touristy places such as A'famosa it becomes easy for the sun to burn you, and being close to the sea is often a little windy meaning you wont always notice the burning of your skin...
Saturday night was karaoke night on the podium at the end of Jonker Street, while walking down the street and tasting all the local delicatecies we were at the right place to catch these two ladies' dance. The one all made up went on stage a little later and her voice was surprisingly high pitched and very smooth. That dance was definitely a show I am glad we didn't miss :o)
shopping western style adjacent to eastern style
A large collection of stores selling food and drink, home furnishings, shoes, clothing, cds and dvds at cheap prices, bags among other things.
Air conditioned, so it is a respite from the heat outside...
On Fri to Sun night, Jonker street closes at 6pm and the Pasar Malam comes to life.
There are many food stalls and fashion shops along Jonker street that you can shop for.
The pasar malam is open till midnight.
A great place for shop and eat till you drop. causal
