Thumbs up Photolog : Historical Melaka (Malacca)

This was a weekend run from a recent work trip to KL in Feb. Just sharing the photos since there's not much to say.

What I would recommend: everything in the photolog!

Worth visiting from KL or in a Malaysia trip of 1+ weeks. Not that awesome IMHO for someone visiting Malaysia's natural wonders. As a metaphor - Its not KL's Agra (in terms of must visit factor) though quite historic.

Jonker Walk - TERRIBLY OVERRATED!

Default Re: Photolog : Historical Melaka (Malacca)

I forgot the other part: how to get there. Yes, there is an airport but its faster to get there by bus from KL, than to get to the airport.
KL has different bus stations for different parts of the country. Melaka, Johor Bahru etc are served by Term Bersepadu Selatan Station (TBS). The LRT station to get there is Bandar Tasik Seletan, which is connected to TBS by a nice walkway (like everything in Malaysia!). Here's a link to the LRT map. Here is a page with a few schedules.

You buy tickets on the 3rd (?) floor from a common sales counter. No need to wander from kiosk to kiosk.

TBS is better than most Indian non-metro airports (excl the big metros) btw
