Finally, Day 4, we need check out of the hotel around 12 pm. As the time for us to board the coach bound for Singapore is around 2 pm, we left our luggage with the hotel concierge and went for last minute shopping. The place to board the coach is where we alight when we first arrived, is the bus parking bay just next to the hotel. The journey back to Singapore is around 3 and half hour and a rest stop at Yong Peng for some early dinner. End of my Malacca Travel Story, look forward to my coming travel story soon. :)

Opened to the public in 1994, this unique museum is an enlightening trip back into Malacca’s past. Read more from website.
