Apparently I am asking what to do in malacca other than walking in jonker street and go behind those malls surrounding hatten hotel.
If you're willing to walk, there are lots of streets to explore and places to go. Join a local walking tour, if have to.

Malacca is a historical city. Of course there is more to it than Jonker St and Mahkota Parade or Hatten Square.

if u are in melaka raya area, you should be able to see quite a few of them along the street.

the one i patronize often is about a few mins drive from jonker. dont have the address, google thai royal massage, it's diagonally across from bei zhan. no nonsense and good thai sports massage. i think they still have happy hours (10am-12pm?) in the morning, damage is around rm90 for 90 mins of real massage. have fun.

There used to be a good Klang BKT joint across from this massage place, but I think it's gone/moved.

Once walked there and back from Casa del Rio, though someone offered to drive. Good exercise and sightseeing at the same time.

oh the one behind the thai massage? ya, but i think most likely gone already. i think if u cross to the other side of the main street, you will be able to find plenty of restaurants there too. thai food, western food, dim sum...

then walk further down abit, there's also a hawker center, very crowded esp at night. used to makan there quite often a few years ago - the usual ikan bakar, satay, popiah, czs char, lor bak... the owner of that hawker center owns the big coffeshop right beside it. they have been there for > 10+ years. only a few yrs ago, they decided to renovate the whole hawker center until it is what it is today. i believe they easily collect > rm50k pm rental. really huat big big.

Hatten and Estadia according to Google map, is only about 4 mins walk away, 300m, not far.

I've seen 707 stop outside (in front) of Hatten, so just double-check with them when you're on board, or call their office if you want to confirm beforehand.

If 707 doesn't stop at any of the Yong Peng 2 regular rest stops (each has a Digi dealer counter somewhere at a corner), then you can either get your prepaid SIM card at Dataran Pahlawan, or cross the road - Celcom Center on the right of Hatten, Maxis Center in Mahkota Parade Mall, or Digi Center further left of Mahkota Parade at Plaza Merdeka (somewhere across the road from Dataran's McDonald's, can see the yellow building).

(Edit: Found this which shows how near these 2 hotels are:
The reception (Estadia Hotel) is on the 3rd floor and you have a connecting bridge from the hotel to the Hatten square mall and the Dataram Pahlawan mall on the same floor for easy access. )

Is it faster if I take train to JB central then take grab to Larkin bus terminal then take coach bus to malacca? This way immigration can clear very fast and I can buy both the train and bus tickets online. I don't seem to see anyone doing this combination of transport.
