“If you ask me, I would tell you that this place was comfortably… fun.”
I wasn’t too enthusiastic to visit JB town initially, but given as an assignment, I had to. And, I am going to tell you it’s a place to go, especially with young children!
Though the location wasn’t far from the Tuas second link exit, I decided to book the bus coach instead of self driving, at least I would be in a group along the way. And my plan was to return only the next day after an overnight stay at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour.
“Hotel stay here, good or bad for your vacation stay?”
In case you wish to know which hotel we stayed in Malacca, here’s the pretty new Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences, we did.
The interior of the hotel as well as its rooms was elegant, spacious and looked classy, with a reasonable room rate offered. There is also a large balcony in each guest room, for a view or breeze.
Bed was comfortable, and there is a 2-seater sofa as well as ‘see-through’ bath provided in the room. Not all guest rooms come with straight sofa seats, my parents’ room had the curvy seats which are unfit to lay flat down overnight. The hotel provides extra bedding at a reasonable rate, if third guest requires it. However, it’s really not necessary to pay for an extra bed for your young toddler who usually co-sleeps with you, even though the hotel booking websites stated so, as one of their terms & conditions.
“Our 2-day FOOD Trip in Malacca..was so recharging!”
We visited Malacca over the weekend.
This was our second short getaway within the year. From SG to Malacca, it took around 3 hours bus journey.
I loved vacations!
As a self claimed traveler, not so a tourist (><), we always had our extensive research and detailed itinerary planned out, for every single trip, long and short, and aimed to fulfil each and every programme set out in the excel sheet. Without disappointment, we indeed fulfilled all our planning, for food and visits. Certainly, it was the food that matters the most to me! :) The best experience from this trip was gotten to try Malacca local delicacies and specialites food like Chendol, Satay Celup and Chicken rice ball.. Good old yummy food!
