Melaka / Malacca is a historic city located on south of Kuala Lumpur. Its position facing Malacca straits has made it an important city during eighteenth century and until now.
- From Kuala Lumpur
Take bus from Puduraya Bus Station, there are many bus companies offer this route, so nearly half an hour you can have a bus to Melaka. Journey time is about 2 hours.
- From Dumai or Pekan Baru
Take boat from city port and will be arriving at Malacca port. It is quite a distance, so have a good sleep during journey
- From KLIA / LCCT Airport
There is a direct bus from airport to Melaka Central or Melaka Mahkota Hospital. The bus company is Transnasional, it is located on stop #6 outside LCCT. Bus fare is RM 22/adult, journey time is 1 hour 30 minutes.
- From Singapore
Take bus from Lavender St bus terminal and directly arrive at Melaka Central. Journey time is about 3.5-4 hours
Melaka itself has limited city transportation means. There are several
bus lines serving this city. You can take city bus from Melaka Central
(this is central bus terminal) to Mahkota Hotel and Hospital for only RM
1.50-2.00. Bus is not well maintained but quite reliable. But for
tourist your the best bet is to catch tourist panorama bus. It is a
double-deck bus (I believe imported from London), red color, and
traveling across tourist spots.
