We stayed at the Ibis hotels, Nusa Dua.  This hotel is opposite Holiday Inn resort.  Nusa Dua is the centre for water sports in Bali.

Revisiting Malacca – a heritage city

March 27, 2016 1 comment

During the long weekend, my friend and I decided to rent a car and drive to Malacca but it being a busy time we could not get a car.  So we took a bus instead. The ride to Malacca takes about 3 hours from Johor.

Malacca is the third smallest Malaysian state, after Perlis and Penang. It is located in the southern region of the Malay Peninsula, on the Straits of Malacca. It borders Negeri Sembilan to the north and the state of Johor to the south. The capital is Malacca City, which is 148 km south east of Malaysia’s capital city Kuala Lumpur, 235 km north west to Johor’s largest city Johor Bahru.   The monarchy was abolished in Malacca when the Portuguese conquered it in 1511. The Yang di-Pertua Negeri or Governor, rather than a Sultan, acts as the head of state now.
