Customer Travel Tip: I would recommend to stay somewhere else... closer to Jonker Walk is a better vibe and cleaner places. I stayed in a really nice one last time but can't remember the name.

Customer Travel Tip: Walk around and enjoy the sites. Get info on public transit before you get to Malacca. Makes it easier to figure out how to get around.

Liked: Most tourist sites, including churches and china town area are within walking distance.

Disliked: Cheap restaurants are hard to find, unless you really look. China town area is a little expensive. Alcohol is expensive due to high taxes on alcohol in Malaysia. Public transit is limited.
