    My stay was ruined by one of the staff


    Sam the owner was very nice, unlike the other rude guy who works there, the first room we had was disgusting but then they moved us to another building and it was so much better with nicer room, bathroom is way small, this place is suitable for one night stay a place to sleep nothing more, if you are on a tight budget go for it other than that you can find much better hostels to stay. I don't recommend the dorm pay a little more and get a private room.

Cheap alternative from SIN to A FORMOSA via JB

by urbanmale_tods

Will be going to A Farmosa from Singapore in December sch holidays but direct coach package here for a 3D2N from Five Stars is $285 per pax and is expensive. Can anyone help me with a cheaper alternative bypass ?

1. Where to catch a reliable express bus in JB to Melaka? Can I buy them from Merlin Tower next to customs or Larkin? Heard its cheaper than SIN-MALAKA.

2. Upon arrival at Melaka Sentral Bus Terminal, where can I catch a bus to A Farmosa? Is it expensive if I catch a taxi there?

3. Likewise, on the return leg, where can I get reputable express bus ticket from Melaka back to Singapore directly?

Thanks alot.

i would suggest you to log in www.afamosa.com.my, i am sure u can get cheaper than what Five Stars quoted u. From Malacca Sentral that's no direct bus to A'Famosa, a taxi will cost you around RM 50-RM70 per way, alternative you can take a bus (without air-cond-below RM5 per person) from Malacca Sentral to Tampin, than from Tampin, take a taxi to A'Famosa (cost RM 15-RM25) per taxi.
You can order a taxi from A'Famosa Tour counter, than take a bus from Malacca Sentral back to Singapore, alternative, u can take the taxi to Tampin Railway Station, that's a train going to Singapore.

Travel Tips for Melaka

Melaka Theme? (I don't think so)

by muddybok

Since Melaka is such a historical city and food heaven, the demands for visiting tourists to Melaka to bring back something is always there. In short, I am going to list out some of the things you should buy from Melaka because of the uniqueness of the city.

The wooden clogs (are high on aunties' list), Cencaluk (fermented shrimp), Aik Cheong Coffee, paintings and postcards of Melaka, Orang Utan t-shirts, and some old antiques from collectors' boutiques should be considered.

There are at most 2 shops that selling some low quality Balinese landscaping items and I don't think you should waste your precious time/money buying them and better get yourself an oil change session at Hoe Kee/Chong Wah chicken rice stores.

Dress Light

by keeweechic

Clothing : Light, cool and casual clothing is recommended all year round. Shorts, miniskirts, sleeveless garments for women are not advisable, especially in the rural areas. and when visiting Mosques and temples. Comfortable walking shoes.

Wishing Well

by sha08ron

Locals believed that water from this wishing well brings wealth. Many goes there to fetch well water to clean car plates, main gate etc to pray that they will strike lottery! Go try! But be mindful not to dip your mobile phone into the water hoping that the number will strike! :)

12 cubicle were built next to the well, each representing the chinese horoscopes, for people to take a quick bath with the water.

Tourist Got Suck

by yeikloen about Tan Kim Hock

This is definately the shop being visited by almost every visitor to Melaka....!!! Why because they sell all the Malaccan speciality from Cincalok, to Durian Dodol to even instant Bak Kut Teh or Curry powder. The Coconut Sweet is pretty okay, cost about RM3.80 for 200gm. But overall the price are quite pricey.

Never ever eat the cendol, cost too much, RM3.00 for a bowl... see my Cendol food recommendation on Cendol.

Pasar Maalam (Night - Market)

by bpacker about The Night Bazaar at Jonker Street

Come every weekend, the narrow, twisted streets at Jonker closes to traffic and hawkers on pushcarts gather to sell all kinds of delicious street food and local items. In the meantime, the shops at Jonker Walk also bustles with life. You can hear strains of karaoke at the clan associations mingling with the sound of funeral rites performed just a couple of streets away. This is the heartbeat of Melaka and the very place you should be if you're here..

Jonker St or Jalan Hang Jebat
