Most Recent What to Pack in Melaka

  • Lots of light clothing cos you will be sweating!

    by travelwomaniac Updated Jun 11, 2012

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Suncream, Hat, sunglasses and sandals

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can get them cheap there so no worries if you didnt bring any.

    Miscellaneous: Melaka is only a small city so most places are walkable, make sure you have comfortable sandals but shoes will give you sweaty feet. The shopping malls around the area will give you some relief from the burning sun n humidity.Get yourself a chinese fan or battery operated (you can find them at souvenior shops dotted about everywhere) to cool off if there isnt any breeze. You can wear almost anything Ill recommend shorts n vest, there is no dress code except maybe visiting a mosque.

    Keeping the Heat at Bay in Malacca

    by arianne_1504 Updated Jul 22, 2011

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I went in July and it was HOT. You could feel the sun stinging you. So I would definitely suggest an umbrella to keep the sun off and pick up some hand fans to keep you cool - you can find them at the stalls outside the Christ Church, and they make a pretty souvenir.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I would bring your bathers if you are staying overnight!

    Miscellaneous: For those who use 2 pins for electronic equipments, please noticed that in Malacca [also all of Malaysia states] using 3 pins. So you need adaptor from 2 pins to 3 pins.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You will do a lot of walking when in Melaka so make sure you have comfortable footwear. There are cobbled streets, rocky paths and footpaths as well as a few parks for relief.

    And I haven't mentioned the shopping centre walkign yet!

    Sun Cream!!

    by Designerartgirl Written Dec 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: 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...
