if u know how to walk, its the best, along from equitorial hotel to jonker street, there are many good food along the way.. before going to jonket street, you can stop by the capitol satay celup to try the famous satay celup. you will be able to recognise this shop because during weekends, there are many people lining up just to try this famous dish

last bus from larkin, if i am not wrong, is 830pm or 9pm.. The bus will be Mayang sari.. Anyway, why take the risk where you may end up no more tickets to Malacca.. why not take a direct bus from Singapore?

Hi rodentmaniac, last bus from Lavendar is 645pm (Delima) or 7pm (SG-Mlk) or 7pm (707, Bugis).. can you make it on time? If not, then you have to try Larkin. Sometime if Melaka ticket finsih selling, you may negotiate to bus companies to KL to stop you before going into Ayeh Keroh toll, and you walk in.. (that's the last option I would advise)
Its either 707, Delima, Sg-Mlk.. Alternatively, you can buy from Golden Coach depart at 915am where they stop at Alor Gajah Melaka @$25.

Holiday Inn is about 15-20min walk to jonker street, depending how fast u walk. But its walkable distance i would say. Its like walking from Cityhall MRT to Raffles place MRT.

I think abt the same distance, different direction only. 20 mins is abt rite, slow walk 30 mins also possible.

Btw, the walk from Equatorial to Jonker Street is easier than Holiday Inn to Jonker Street. In front of Holiday Inn, there is a busy main road which is not easy and dangerous to cross. No bridge no greenman.

yup.. equitorial is much easier access to jonker street rather than Holiday Inn. I would suggest you to stay at equitorial, or hotel puri which is the nearest to jonker street

equitorial hotel.. bcos just beside equitorial hotel, there are historical places like A Famosa, etc..
For Holiday Inn, this place is nearer to 'The Eye of Malacca'..

To me, abt the same. Both offer almost the same and standard hotel facility. Unless talking abt A'Famosa resort, then the theme park might fun for young kids.
