I'd try to extend my stay over the weekend into Tuesday at least, to savor the quieter atmosphere.
yes you should. plenty of nice food to try in melaka.

u may also consider spending a night in muar. ie check out on monday, and drive to muar and spend a night there. can eat bak kut teh for lunch, dinner (glutton street), breakfast(hawker center), hotel check out and eat cze char lunch. drive back to jb for dinner then to sg.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't drive so I don't have that luxury. I get my BKT fix from a joint in Melaka itself, the owner learned the trade from someone in Klang and also travels there weekly for his supplies.

My suggestion's actually meant for tjiax1. My typical trip to Melaka is to arrive Thursday, latest Friday, then leave preferably on Tuesday earliest or Monday if I've to. Some people may think Melaka boring if stayed "too long", but I love the place and enjoy moving around there.

When I'm lazy, my meals are easily fixed by strolling to the makan places around Casa del Rio Hotel/Residences.

Never actually step into Muar. Is there anything fascinating stuffs in the town beside their famous otah??

yup, can fix your bkt cravings in melaka. quite reasonable and taste is good too.

i think its a good suggestion to spend a few days in melaka and enjoy the food. better still if you drive and know where the locals usually go for lunch and dinner. can also consider doing a movie marathon at palawan mall, go karting, play golf, chill out along some pub at night, massage...

I went before, mainly food.

If go, make sure in empty stomach, can see cannot eat is waste of trip, quite far distance from town.

There are so many new hotels in Malacca now. All within walking distance.

Equtorial, Hatten, The Straits, Novotel and Imperial Hotel - all located within each other.

Hatten wifi is quite weak.

I stayed at The Straits recently. Cheap and good with swimming pool and secured parking. I parked my car there and walk to Jonker street and palawan mall daily without using the car.

Jonker Street is about 500m away, with a pedestrian-only street you can use for much of the way. Taking a bus will require more time because of the heavy one-way traffic.
