Jonker Walk, Melaka, Malaysia
Where to stay in Melaka
Each and every time we have visited Melaka we have had the same overall priority: stay close to Jonker Walk. And by ‘close’ I don’t mean necessarily right on this famous street. Many of the streets running parallel to Jonker Walk are quieter and still convenient.
The last time we were in Melaka we stayed at Kawan Kawan Guest House. Overall, this was a conveniently located budget option (about 3 minutes from Jonker Walk).
We shared a three-person room and overall our stay was quite pleasant. The partitions between their walls could be thicker, subsequently, if a party crowd was staying there it could get a bit too loud.
There are many accommodation choices in Melaka that fit a range of budgets. To look for the right hotel, you can use one of the three sites to book our room: www.agoda.com, www.booking.com, or www.hotelscombined.com.
Both Agoda.com and Booking.com offer wide selections and competitive prices whereas www.hotelscombined.com is a price comparison site that we use all the time to find the cheapest rooms.
Booking Flights To/From Melaka (Malacca)
How did we find the cheapest flight(s) to Melaka (Malacca) during our trip?
The most practical airport to fly into when you are planning on seeing Melaka is Kuala Lumpur International Airport (airport code = KUL). Technically, Melaka does have its own airport but 99% of tourists don’t fly there as no major airlines fly there.
Typically, tourists first fly from different regions around the world to Kuala Lumpur and then transit (taking the train or bus) to Melaka. We used two different price comparison sites for our flight to Kuala Lumpur: Momondo and BookingBuddy .
Once we arrived in Kuala Lumpur we followed these steps to get to Melaka. Another alternative option to get to Melaka is flying into Johor Bahru or Singapore. I have personally travelled from Johor Bahru to Melaka following these steps.
I would suggest that you should use price comparison sites to find the cheapest flights to KL, Johor or Singapore. I have included a link to both Momondo and BookingBuddy – a site that we commonly use to save you some time and cash:
