Ya, always jam at Malacca, Jonker Street lagi worse. That is why I dun encourage people to drive around Jonker Street. Just park at your hotel and walk.

Malacca the most stay for 3 days can liao, too long will be bored unless you extend to Port Dickson.

Those planning to go Malacca, enjoy your trip!

but friday - tues ... haha guess its too long for malacca.
Depends lah. I chiong Friday to Sunday, then Monday slow down a little for lazy shopping, hangout, etc, since the crowd quiets down a bit. Then Tuesday last minutes' eat/shop/walk before heading back.

Holiday must also find time to relax, not chiong everywhere!

Not that bad if you stay in a hotel with an environment nice enough for you to hang in and around the vicinity.

Don't even think of driving around Jonker area, coz even the cabs reach faster when they loop around via the other roads, and human get through faster on foot.

Grab a few phone numbers of cab groups/companies that go by meter. With their RM2 booking fee, the fare might still be lower than those... And consider walking if you're able to.

Jonker to Equatorial is not that far if you bother to walk, even siam into Dataran Pahlawan if you need a little aircon, but depending on your starting point, some cabs need to make a big loop due to the many one-way streets.

I've rejected quite a few offers for free rides whenever I want to get to Dataran Pahlawan, coz I could reach there faster walking, than for a vehicle to make a big loop just to get to a spot to alight passengers. Let's go green, help to save petrol!

Hatten hotel is good and convenient. got direct bus to singapore. The only bad thing is that it gets very crowded during morning buffet breakfast.

When will you will be travelling? that time i book last min so not that cheap.
