Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Come prepared for the sun, and try to avoid the crowds. Be wary of parking. Explore famous sites on foot, without travel guides.

Liked: Great historical culture- I recommend not being in a tour and traversing the streets of Jonker by foot- there are many cool Bohemian shops with antiques and arts, and some really cool restaurants with great atmosphere. Also, exploring A'Famosa and other historical sites were pretty cool. Great places to eat! Try the durian puffs, Nyonya cuisine, and icy desserts. We stumbled upon the Baboon House and you HAVE to try it!

Disliked: Horrible experience with parking- we're supposed to get a ticket from God-knows-where to park anywhere, and no way of knowing about this. We got a RM30 fine for parking somewhere over the night. Then to pay the fine was also a nightmare as everyone we asked directed us to a different place, and it was really hard to find the right place anyway- hidden deep in a shopping mall! Really?! You could get there by train/bus, but you'll have to brave the throng of people and scorching sun on foot. There are taxis and trishaws but obviously those won't come cheap. Quite packed during the weekend. I recommend going during weekdays, or exploring the city late at night (after 11pm) or in the wee hours of morning (5/6 am).
