Wish to book Holiday Inn Melaka for 3 adults and given a number of choices namely, DELUXE 1KING BED STRAITS VIEW NONSMOKING or DELUXE 2 SGL BED STRAITS VIEW NONSMOKING. Which would be a better choice? For the third person, would they provide an additional bed?

I will be driving to Malacca. Have not been to Malaysia for quite a while. Understand that you need a Touch N Go card and that it is available for sale only in Malaysia. Do I need to use it when clearing customs, and where can one purchase such card?
I stayed before a huge DELUXE KING BED CITY VIEW NONSMOKING ROOM with 1 King Bed + 1 Single Bed (I did not request, 2 pax only). I do not know if this room available for STRAITS VIEW.

I could not recall the room number. Try your luck to request.

Touch N Go card can buy @ custom booth, drive to the last booth.

It's not advisable to take public bus from Malacca Sentral to Hotel Puri unless you are really familiar with the place. Taxi from Malacca Sentral to Hotel Puri should be in between 10-15 mins (if no traffic jam).

To those who would like to experience the local bus, you may take "Town Bus" from Malacca Sentral to reach the hotel. I am not so sure the bus number, you need to verify this with the counter of "Town Bus" company before board any bus. I am sure this will give you the experience that you will never forget. Ahahaha
Bus 17. Ask around. To red square only RM1.

Melaka is packed with ppl every weekend and is quite difficult to drive around nowadays, super jam. Best is to park nearby and walk now.

There is a budget motel with an irish pub you can go to watch soccer.
Opposite Holiday Inn is Makota Shopping, to the left is the hawker centre (i heard close liao) and to the left of the hawker centre are shop houses. There are a few new motels there. Just drive alone the lane and you will find it (it is located at the corner unit of the shop houses). Outside the pub is a photo of a beer maid. Sorry forgot the name of the place and didn't take any pic in my last trip. Rooms are clean cos the establishment is only about 1 year old.

The other suggestion by temasekcity is also good.
Cos The Jetty is a nice place to chill.

Oh, you are not driving. No problem.

Equatorial is 10 min south walk from Holiday Inn. Or you can take Bus 17 or the tour bus (red colour) near to your hotel (outside Secret receipe). Damage RM1/pax. Go one long way for 10min too.

For more pubs, try walking down to Jalan Merdeka and after Felix Inn, turn left. There are many restaurants and hopefully, there should be some pubs.

Melaka Sentral is quite far from Equatorial. After alighting at Melaka Sentral, take a cab RM15-20 (10min) or take Bus 17 or red bus (preferred cos air-con) from Sentral at RM1.5/pax (15min). You will alight at the Secret Receipe (Melaka Megamall).
