Pocket friendly Bus ride from Singapore to Melaka City from Danielbennet's blog

Taking a bus from Singapore to Melaka is one of the most preferred modes of transport for locals as well as tourists. People visit Melaka – thanks to its numerous historical sites and its varied and delicious local food. The city has been listed as the UNESCO World Heritage site in July 2008 and more and more tourists are flocking to Melaka to experience the beautiful city that  i reaslised was that there is no airport or even a train station in the city making bus the only mode of trasportation to reach here. Over the years the city has served as one of the most popular destinations for many Singaporeans as well as tourists who are looking forward to a get away for a quick weekend. There are several express bus services plying on this route between Singapore and Melaka and fares start from SGD21 and go upto SGD25. If you are planning to book a luxury bus fares start from SGD 33. The luxury buses have spacious seats and modern VIP coaches. Howevr, these buses are subject to pick up and drop off locations. The Bus operators that serve on this route are DELIMA Express, KKKL Express and 707.  These operators are the most preferred ones by the Malaysians who stay and work in Singapore and travel back by Bus to their hometown (Melaka)  on a Friday night and return to Singapore by Bus on a Sunday afternoon. Most of the buses starting from Singapore are known to terminate at the Melaka Sentral which is an integrated transportation hub in the city. It is just 10 minutes away from the Melaka City Centre. I took my bus tickets online from redbus and I was quite pleased with the convenient process of bus ticket reservation. 




The popular pick up points where Operators pick up passengers from,  are the Golden Mile Complex and the Golden Mile Tower Bus Stop which are located along Beach Road.  I highly recommend you to take the express bus to Melaka that goes via Bugis and will terminate at the Queen Street Bus Terminal. The bus tickets fares are affordable and I would recommend you to choose the Express Bus service that will drop you off close to your hotel. Bus Operators like 707, Konsortium  Travel and the one travel and tours offer hassle free drop off at some of the top hotels of Melaka like Casa Del Rio Melaka, Estadia Hotel, Mahkota Hotel, Holiday Inn, Ramada Plaza, Hatten Hotel, Equitorial Hotel and the Straits Hotel. If you are planning to go to the City Centre it is just 4.5 kms away from the Melaka Central Bus Terminal. I took Bus No. 17 to China Town which is the historial city centre. 




Things that you can do in Melaka include a visit to China Town which is known for its wide variety of economical restaurants and clothes. Also make sure to visit the street's night market especially on  Fridays and Saturdays. If you are a foodie then this is the perfect place for you.
