Travelling by bus to Kuala Lumpur from Malacca
Malacca is one city in Malaysia, which has an abundance of breath taking sites with rich heritage. It is quite easy to get around the city on foot to explore the magnificent places that the city has to offer. The city has largely contributed to the Peranakkan culture of Malaysia. It possesses a great blend of customs, traditions, food and lifestyle. It has a great mix of old and new historical buildings standing right beside each other. There are quite a few ultra-modern shopping centres here where you can shop a huge range of products at affordable prices.
It is considered one of the most popular tourist destinations – thanks to the famous Jonker Street. It is set up at night and is buzzing with tourists from all over the world. The city is not just known for its shopping complexes and nightlife but also its delicious food. Almost every street has stalls selling healthy and tasty food at affordable prices. The locals claim that the best local dishes in Malaysia have originated from Malacca. Based on my personal experience I would recommend you to spare atleast five to six days to tour this city in order to absorb as much as possible. After my tour in Malacca ended, it was time for me to head to my next destination, which was Kuala Lumpur – the beautiful capital city of Malaysia. I could not find any airplane tickets and hence I decided to book a bus rather. After my experience in travelling by Bus from Malacca to Kuala Lumpur, I had decided that never again am I travelling by air to any other city in Malaysia. I booked my bus tickets from this website https://www.redbus.my/bus-tickets/malacca-to-kuala-lumpur and selected my choice of seats right in the comfort of my hotel room.
There were only two Operators plying between Malacca and Kuala Lumpur. Mayang Sari Express and Transnasional had about 7 to 8 Buses plying throughout the day. I booked my bus tickets with Mayang Sari Express based on the recommendation of a friend. The Operator had about 6 buses plying throughout the entire day. The first one at 8:00 am in the morning and the last one leaving Malacca at 1:00 pm in the afternoon. I booked my Bus in the 1:00 pm slot as this is the time when traffic is less. The cost of the tickets with this Operator start from SGD12. There are about 28 to 35 seats in a single bus making seating quite comfortable in the Bus. Transnasional being the only Luxury Bus Operator had two buses plying throughout the day. The first one at 5:00 am in the morning and the other one within 30 minutes at 5:30 am. The cost of the tickets started from SGD20 and went up all the way to SGD25. There were about 20 seats in each Bus with ample of legroom and elbow space. The total duration of the journey is about 2 hours.
