You can either take a bus from Singapore in ~20SGD or from Johor Bahru after crossing the border in ~20RM. The drop off point is generally Malacca central.
Malacca has options of luxurious/ good/ average hotels but I chose to stay in a hostel which generally provide an option of dorms or private room. Though I noticed that many good hostels were not listed online.
You will always find restaurants , cafes packed with people here. People love the Malay, Chinese cuisine food served here , specially the chicken rice balls and coconut candy. Jonker Street is full of stalls selling street food and people seem to love it all.
Things to do-
*Walk the Jonker street-
Jonker street is always packed with tourists eating, shopping and walking around . This place is the most happening one in Malacca.
