Hi guys, I am thinking of renting a car from JB to drive up to Melacca. I am wondering if it's worth it. Is Grab readily available there?

Grab is very convenient and cheap. I have taken Luxury Coach recently, very good. 7:30am depart, reach Melaka at 12pm.

To explore rural Malacca, rent a car there. Do you like to explore the highway between JB and Malacca?

Some ppl think that driving from sg to Melaka is very easy :D

Take note: Melaka road very narrow and many one way traffic, so traffic at certain area very jam.
And those who take grab, evening time price will surge and waiting time will be longer.

driving at malacca not difficult, if can survive at JB traffic then shldn't be a prob~ finding parking lot also not as bad as penang or ipoh~ if intend to go jonker street then better take grab~

drive from jb to malacca, can visit batu pahat chong long gong temple then head to Muar if you hv extra time to spend, else just drive nshw straight~ :s22:

Weather similar to sg. They preserve a lot of old building that why listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sure you can. I have done this a few times. Just that the 3-4 hour drive along PLUS between Singapore and Malacca each way is quite boring, I have taken every variation possible, like taking the Jasin, Tangkak, Muar and even Alor Gajah exits. Each option adds time to the journey. I have also driven from Malacca to Jasin and Muar. To avoid having to drive the 3-4 hours on PLUS, you can do just that. Malacca-Muar is only an hour.

cancel. cos if u get covid19 symptoms, u must be treated immediately. else in 5 days x u get pneumonia and in 6 days x , ur in ICU breathing thru a ventilator.

also, Msia health infrasture may not be as advance, well equipped or sufficient unlike Spore.

if die, die must go Malacca, make sure yr travel insurance cover ambulance trip back to SG

Hotel if you book thru agoda, within a period you can refund, after that period is 50% then can't refund. Check your booking confirmation.

Now not much cruise stop at melaka, so less tourist, so should be fine. For me, I will go. Just wear mask when you are in a crowd area.
