How do you book the 707 express bus, Sin-Mal express and Delima Express bus to Malacca ?

Thanks !

There are few places to board the express bus in Singapore to Malacca. Two popular spots are Queen Street (Bus Terminal for 170) the bus company is 707 Express and Lavender Street (In front of Singapore Casket), 2 bus companies there, Singapore-Malacca Express and Delima Express. The ticket cost around S$16/way (if I remember correctly).

707 Express is the most popular choice because of its non-stop service. Sin-Mal Express and Delima Express stop at Machap and Ayer Itam for half an hour rest.

Hope it helps.

Just came back from my Melaka trip (05-06 sept 09). We drove there at around 5.30am on Saturday and no jam.

Hotel Puri
We stayed at Hotel Puri at only RM138 nett with breakfast. The Standard room is not bad, not as small as we thought. It comes with 2 Super Single beds. Room is new cos just renovated. Breakfast wise is good, quite alot of varierities. Location is good just behind Jonker Street where the Weekend Pasar malam is.

We managed to check in at 10.45am and parked at Hotel Puri Car Park (their car park is locked with a gate so is quite safe), you have to inform the bellroom with your confirmation email so they can open the car park gate for you.

Get walking maps at the Hotel Puri reception - they have 2 maps, one is for makan and the other is for shopping.

Day 1
After checking in, we walked few street away to eat the famous wanton mee, not bad at only RM2.80 per plate. Their mee hoon kuey is nice too, all handmade. After that we walked towards the Stadthuys Building for photo taking, along the way, we shop at Jonker Street shops and ate the famous Baba Chendol (Jonker Street) at only RM1.70 per bowl. Taste different cos they add Gula Melaka syrup instead of normal syrup. I prefer their Baba Ice kachang instead as I find their Chendol too much coconut cream. Next, went to Palawan shopping centre which is beside Stadthuys Building and walked back to hotel.

In the evening, we walked to eat the famous Hainanese satay (Sun May Hiong Satay House) only RM0.60 per stick. Very nice, especially the sauce. Their marination is different from Singapore. Next, we went to the famous Tandoori chicken and naan (the best in Malacca), located 2 lanes infront of Puri Hotel. We paid only RM12.80 for 2 lime juices, 1 cheese naan, 1 plain naan and one set of Tandoori Chicken.

We took a walk at Jonker Street Pasar Malam in the evening. Alot of stalls and quite crowded. Try not to bring pram or stroller if you have kids.

Day 2
Next day we checked out at 11.00am and drove to Tesco for shopping and lunch. There is a Hari Raya pasar malam outside Tesco. Things are quite cheap there.

For more info of the famous Melaka food guide, you can see below link:
Cuti Malaysia - Melaka

Overall, we enjoyed our trip very much. Our first driving trip to Melaka. Food and shopping is so much cheaper than KL and JB. We will go there again.

equitorial hotel is not a budget hotel, its a 5 star hotel.. the location is not very near to jonker street.. if u choose to walk, it will take u at least 30min walking time..for public transport, it is advisable to take cab rather than taking bus..

for taxi, they will charge a fix amount per trip..

just hope my information help

The fix amount means the taxi is not running on meter. The fix amount could be any amount. Try negotiate to the price that you feel comfortable. From Equatoria Hotel to Jonker Street shd not cost you more than RM20. I never take the taxi before, but I guess shd b RM10-RM15 per trip due to tourism area.

A hint, I asked before a trip from Equatoria Hotel to Jonker Street by trishaw, I was quoted RM50 per trip. End up I chose to drive rather than take trishaw for fun.
