Yup that is correct... But why not book a coach from sg? Bus 707 is quite cheap.. $20 i think... but travelling to GM might also bw inconvenient for you... only concern is if you go to JB to book, only afraid have to wait a while before the bus leaves...

Taxi wise, alot of taxis touting at the bus station at every hour of the day so no problem

guys, i thinking of taking bus from larkin bus terminal to melaka. Can help to see my steps is correct?

1) take bus 856 to woodland causeway. (stay sembawang, make more sense to go straight to causeway)

2)Clear custom, go down take bus 170 to johor custom.

3) clear johor custom go down take again 170 to larkin bus terminal.

4) reached larkin, book a coach to melaka, most pro KKKL, or any better recommendation?

5) reach melaka sentra bus station, quickly go buy return tix.

Melaka sentra bus station can take taxi to hatten hotel.

is the above correct?

Correct. At Larkin there are many choices. You can also take Johora, Delima, Transnational if your first choice has no seats. Of course you ought to buy the return ticket at Sentral early since you are certain when you want to return.

get reputable company which will leave on time, such as KKKL express, Delima express.. in JB, KKKL express and Delima express is the 1st choice while in Singapore, 707 express is the 1st choice.. anyway, all these 3 companies leave punctually

Hello, I have booked a 2d1n trip to meleka, staying at hatten from Sunday to Monday. Just to check if the night market is open on Sunday night? Safe for a solo traveller to walk around at night? Thanks!

Equatorial feels abit more traditional for today's standard. Whereas Hatten feels more modern, have 2 LCD tvs, a long sofa near the entrance (where you can have some good pumping action, you know what I mean).

Pricing wise, it's quite similar ~

Have hatten resolved their slow check in n out?
IMO, they need some improvements here. They should have somebody outside to direct the guests to the queues during peak periods.

Sometimes they just open a queue, and can you imagine that I am queuing adjacent at the 5th position, and somebody arrives and just get the first place ~

I find it so so. Guess I have been eating at the wrong places.

Pity my girl was sick on the night before the trip, with high fever. So basically most of the trip was spent in the hotel with me going out to ta bao from nearby shops.
