Ah ok! Thanks for the prompt reply! Have any of you tried Lapan Lapan Travel?
Never tried them, but I think they've been around.

Better to call ahead. They are a popular venue for wedding dinners.
i called in beizhan and they advised us to just get a booking just in case.

once u get a booking, a parking slot will be reserved for u as well.
Thanks for the advise!

If anyone happens to visit the Portuguese Village while in Melaka, you can consider buying the bottles of mango or fish pickles sold by the museum's shop. Or ask at the nearby beer joint if the museum is closed.

In glass bottles, though, but it's worth your effort if you like pickles.

Hi all,

Would you guys recommend purchasing coach tickets and book the hotel rooms directly or via those packaged deals (hotel+coach) from Groupon/deal.com.sg? Plan to travel on 1st Jan 2016.

Thank you!

Easy of you to check the OneMotoring live camera view of the traffic. Very up-to-date in your case since you live so near the Causeway.

If you are using a GPS device, you shouldn't have any problems getting onto the highway. Slow traffic might be a problem though.

No longer true for a few years since the opening of the EDL, which gives a direct route to the North South Highway without having to enter JB.
Follow the directions in here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtDXi14LaEU
Head for KL to get onto the North South Highway.

agree, agree.. doesnt make much difference.. if you stay around woodlands area, exit via woodlands more convenient, if you are staying east side, it does not make any difference
