Penang to Malacca

by SeLLDoGeYe

Hi my plan is, after Penang, my next destination will be Malacca.
My questions are:
1. I should take Airasia (which lands at LCCT) or Firefly (which lands at Subang)?
2. Which station for buses to Malacca? Kl Sentral or Bukit Jalil?
Thank you!!!

Bus from Bukit Jalil Bus station to Melaka Sentral is a nice trip - about 2 hours from memory. I have only flown into LCCT then caught the bus to Chinatown then walked down to Bukit Jalil.

Hi so your route is LCCT-China Town-Bukit Jalil-Melaka Sentral? TQ :)

It's up to you to take Airasia or Firefly.

IF you lands at Subang with Firefly, the closest bus station to Melaka is Klang Sentral or Shah Alam. Klang Sentral is a better option because it has multiple provider with more trip than Shah Alam. This is a better option because it is closer to Subang compare to Bukit Jalil.

IF you take Airasia, You don't have to go to KL Sentral or Bukit Jalil. There is a bus going to Melaka from LCCT itself. With only 4 trips per day 9.30AM, 11.00AM, 5.30PM and 10.00PM provided by only one company, Transnasional.

Cafank,

I don't know how you can walk to Bukit Jalil from Chinatown. It's about 20 minutes drive from each other.

Din, thanks for your information!
1. Do I need to book the bus ticket in advance?
2. How long is the journey from LCCT to Melaka?
3. How far is it from Melaka Sentral to Georgetown?
Thank you. :)

1. Do I need to book the bus ticket in advance?
If you land in Subang and going to Klang Sentral, bus are easily available and you don't have to book early for it. But, you didn't tell what date you will be here. IF it is during festive season, you have to book early for ticket. For LCCT, due to limited space and trip, it's better for you to call them and book by phone.

2. How long is the journey from LCCT to Melaka?
LCCT to Melaka takes about one and half hours

3. How far is it from Melaka Sentral to Georgetown?
about 6-7 hours driving, depends on the traffic.
Another tips, if you want to take bus instead of fly your way to Melaka, take a bus from Butterworth instead of Georgetown. What you have to do is take a ferry from Georgetown to Butterworth. The Long distance bus station is just a walking distance from ferry station. Ferry is free from Georgetown to Butterworth, but it is RM 1.20 from Butterworth to Georgetown

Once lies St Francis Xavier

by Audrey118

The church is famous because it was here that the body of St Francis Xavier, the pioneering Catholic missionary of SEAsia once lied here for 8 months during 1553.

The open grave is covered by blue wire mesh.

There are a number of strange incidences relating to the body of Francis Xavier. Strangest of all is that his body is still on display at the Basilica of Bom Jesus in Goa, India (it is open to the public once every 10 years).

Like many saints, the body has resisted extensive decay for almost 500 years.

The saga of St Francis Xavier's body began shortly before the time of his death. As Xavier lay dying in San Chian, China, he instructed the sailors accompanying him to return his bones to Goa in India. When St Francis Xavier died the sailors put lots of quicklime ffin to help decay faster making it lighter to bring his bones back to Goa.

According to legend the sailors temporarily buried the body in Sancian while the sailors attended to other business. When the ship was about to leave, the coffin was brought on board and opened. But the body remain very 'fresh' looking.

Ancient Megalith Stones & tomb

by stimix

Well, this complex actually not part of Malacca. It's actually located at Pengkalan Kempas, Negeri Sembilan which is on the OLD truck road to Port Dickson before the completion of Linggi bridge.

I have written another separate review on this long forgotten complex even locals don't even know its exist here:

Alor Gajah District Museum

by mansionion

Located in the midle of the Alor Gajah town, this is the best place to find out more about Alor Gajah's history, particulalrly of the Naning War which saw fierce clashes between the British and the locals over dispute about tax collection and control of the district rich resources.

There are also sections devoted to local custom, culture and tradition.Main exhibits here include the bridal dais, jewellery and other items of personal adornment, but there are also porcelain items, pictures of outstanding personalities of the district and objects used in traditional ceremonies.

In the vicinity of the museum are stalls selling souvenier and food, a monument and other recreational facilities.

Local Food Products

by chatterley about Tan Kim Hock

Tan Kim Hock is one of the best places to buy local foodstuff in Malacca. In this store, you'll find plenty of choices - coffee powder, be-teh-so biscuits, cincalok (shrimp paste), etc. I bought some durian dodol (dodol is a kind of "kueh"), made of gula melaka, coconut flower water, coconut milk, glutinous rice flour..and of course, durian! The rich durian flavour and its creamy texture is fabulous! This packet (200 grams) cost 4.80 Ringgit, I think.
