Weekend Holiday in Malacca

Overview

Quote:
Located about 2 hours from the capital city of KL, Malacca is a popular tourist haunt for local and foreigners alike. It is a old historical city where one can view old and historical buildings and have a good time hanging around there (there are lots of places to have a good bite and drink).

Quick Tips: There are plenty of hotels , inns, and budget accommodations which one can get a place to stay from RM 50 to RM 250 a night depending on your budget.

This hotel is a 2-star hotel located less than a 5-minute driving distance from the major attractions of Malacca e.g. A Famosa and Jonker Walk.

It gets better and better. The best part of this place is the food. Basically, the food is one of the better ones that I have eaten throughout the city. A must try is the chicken rice and the "asam laksa". The "asam laksa" is a type of spicy and sour mee with all sorts of local spices in it. To cool it off, there's always the "cendol"...an ice-shaved dessert in a bowl with some red beans, corn, "cen...Read More
