AFAIK, there's no airport in Melaka.

Friend took a coach from Melaka to KL, then flew from KLIA to Penang.
There is indeed an airport in Malacca, at Batu Berendam. More of an aerodrome rather, like our Seletar. It used to serve routes by Fireflyz and AirAsia. It probably has Malindo now.
Habrosus and 1xtreme like this.

Gentle reminder. Melaka is suppose to be no plastic bags effective Jan 2016.
If u go shopping, best bring some bags along.

Just came back. Was caught by surprise when we shopped at Mahkota Popular and Giant.
End up buying a reusable bag from Giant, but used it to pack the stuff we bought, so still ok.

Saw a "circus show" at Giant when a group of 10plus tourist making a ruckus due to the no plastics rule. They were buying trolleys full of stuff.. shouting at the cashier etc....

They can't afford re-usable bags? How embarrassing.

Thanks for the reminder, Phantom37!

I really applause Melaka for being able to implement the no-plastic bags rule, and standing firm by selling only recycle bags.

ya lor! I didn't know that too on our arrival on 17 march. Saw a poster in Palawan mall said that everyday no plastic bag. We forgot about that and bought many drinks in Giant. End up we stuff everything in our haversack.

But to some stores, they still give plastic, I saw ppl carrying, H&M, watson and other plastic bags. According to one store in Palawan Mall, she told me they secretly give plastic bags to customers because they lost a lot of business, many customers do not want to buy when they heard no plastic bag. If kena caught giving plastic will kena summon.

The Giant cashier must have not told the customers that no plastic bags during the purchase that is why the customers get angry. No wonder I was thinking why the Giant cashier so good, tell us no plastic before our purchases. Must be due to the incident you witness.

In Melaka, it's now no longer restricted to weekends.

However, I've noticed a few like Mr DIY, Brand Outlets, and Watsons are still giving plastic bags. Popular and Aeon used paper bags.

You can always buy a recycle bag from one of these places, each costing as little as S$0.90 to S$2?

Luckily I brought 3 recycle bags from Singapore. I find recycle bag very useful. so much durable than plastic bag and paper bag. I always see ppl throwing away the recycle bags in Singapore. So wasteful.

I always bring recycle bags whenever I go overseas de not because I want to save the earth, is because you can throw all your purchases into one big recycle bag and easier to carry mah.
