How long to wait for the Panaroma bus?
Depends on your luck. 80% of the time, I boarded the almost full bus, standing space only, 0 mins of waiting, and around 10 mins of ride , depending on traffic conditions, to reach Mahkota Area.

Latest trip over the weekend, boarded an almost empty bus, got seats, waited around 15 mins for the driver, 10 mins ride into Mahkota area.

Thanks for the advice. Same goes for when walking the Jonker Night Market.

The standard taxi rate from Melaka Sentral to hotel in town is around RM25.. Why not just ask the coach to stop you at the hotel?
Melaka sentral to hatten cost rm 20. The taxi is old, probably as old as the driver.

Nobody knows how long u will b stuck in e jam. Not forgeting there will b alot of traffic coming fr sg n as well as the neighbouring states e.g kl n muar

Everyone go to melaka for a short getaway especially there are many churchs in the town area celebrating gd friday

Better go on other days if u can.

Yep, I took their bus couple of days ago to and fro Melaka, comfortable seats and good guide on board the bus; worth the $67 I paid.

Agree. Avoid Malacca this long weekend and postpone your trip.
