MALACCA TRAVEL GUIDE 马六甲旅游攻略

The local trip itinerary continues! If you missed my Langkawi Travel Guide post, don't forget to read it. Last 2 weeks, me and my friends went to Malacca (Melaka) for a two day one night trip. It is a short free and easy trip but it is always fun when you hang out with friends. This Malacca Travel Guide post will be including all the things to do, what to eat and accommodation of our 2D1N Malacca trip. Enjoy reading and feel free to leave a comment if you have any other suggestion for me to pay a visit too.


Things To Do
Malacca Sand Dunes (Pantai Klebang Melaka)
Malacca Sand Dunes (Pantai Klebang Melaka)



Located 15 minutes from Melaka city, at the end of the Klebang peninsula, these hills of sand and the result of land reclamation activities from a decade ago. Due to stability issues, beachfront developments were abandoned, leaving many piles of sand 10m to 20m high, sitting idle on the land of emptiness.

As of two years ago, photographers and Instagrammers have been making a beeline to Malacca Sand Dunes (also known as Pantai Klebang Melaka) since the first desert-like landscape photograph went viral.

Climbing the dunes is a not-to-be-missed experience as you will slide down a little with each step up, as the soft sand shifts under your feet.

Expect to work a little bit harder to cover the same amount of ground. That said, the sand is not as fine as the volcanic ash of Mount Bromo in Indonesia, and is manageable for beginners and less-experienced hikers.

Most people will adjust to the slide, finding the effort totally worth it for the views and that "top-of-the-hill" feeling. Hint : We walk about at least 20 minutes under the super hot sun just to get this place. So if you decided to pay a visit to this place, make sure to expect to walk a lot and wear a pair of comfortable shoes.


What To Eat
Sin See Tai
Sin See Tai



The name Sin See Tai (新时代) is in Hokkien, which means "New Generation". An experimental ground of The Daily Fix. A cafe of 16 seats, a small kitchen, a small menu with the aim to further explore the possibilities of quality food and coffee.

Located in the peaceful streets of Jalan Jawa where old uncles and aunties still man their shops on a daily basis.

Sin See Tai



In a world where everybody is trying to upsize, they want to keep it small, keep it thoughtful, keep it sincere.

Although it comes with a small space, the place is so cosy. I love their decoration is so retro and greenery. It's just my type.

Sin See Tai



Their one rule of Sin See Tai which is everyone requires to order minimum 1 item on the menu. So if you're thinking to sit here without order any drink or food, then this place is not that one that you're looking for.

Tried their big breakfast and it comes in a big portion. Love their almond chocolate as well. The price is reasonable and I will definitely come back for the next time.

Sun May Hiong Satay House (新味香沙爹屋) is famous for its original satay sauce made of pineapples, which forms a great combination with the perfectly grilled satays with a gentle smokiness.

We had tried the pork and chicken satay. Not sure whether they have other types of meats.

The Old Mark Cafe
The Old Mark Cafe



The Old Mark Cafe in Malacca whips up really delicious souffle pancakes so fluffy like a cloud.

We purposely drop by just for the soft souffle pancakes! I saw it on Instagram so I put it on our itinerary before we head back to KL.

The Old Mark Cafe



Look no further for some satisfying jiggly souffle pancakes! They have a total of four flavours of pancakes and the one we tried here was Tiramisu.

Love the souffle pancake so much! It's so jiggly, soft and delicious! Makes me craving for the souffle pancake that I had when I was in Japan.

Looking at a resting place along Jonker Street in Malacca? Drop by The Stolen Cup, a cosy Malaysian cafe. The Stolen Cup Malacca is a casual coffee shop and restaurant event space that serves Western cuisines and caters up to 10 pax.

We were buying some souvenir at Jonker Street and thought we can stop by a cafe to take a rest. That time was around 5pm and a lot of cafes already been closed. Thank god we found The Stolen Cup!

Their interior and deco are in retro style and colourful.

We tried their coffee, chocolate (for me) and some Portuguese tart. Overall the food is great. I need to emphasize that the waiter and waitress there are super friendly. One of the waiters even praised my bag is looking good. Lol

Portuguese Settlement
Portuguese Settlement

The Portuguese Settlement (Kampung Portugis) is an area of Ujong Pasir in Malacca, which serves as a home for the Kristang people. The Kristang people are a Malaysian ethnic group with mixed Portuguese and Malay heritage, originating from the time of the Portuguese rule in Malacca.

Today the settlement, sometimes called Mini Lisbon, comprises a few streets with names like D'Alberquerque, Sequera, Eredia, D'Aranjo and Texeira. At its heart is the Portuguese Square (Medan Portugis), which comprises a courtyard with a number of seafood restaurants, a couple of bars and a small museum.

Super duper recommended this place! I heard of this place from my colleague who is from Malacca but I haven't been to this place yet. Thanks to my friend - Ruben, he brought us here to try the fresh seafood. The food is delicious and the price is super affordable! We had ordered 2 XL size crabs, stingray with Portuguese style baked, fried squid with salted egg, omelette with oyster, vegetables, rice and drinks for 4 people and it only cost us RM200+. The fresh oyster is from another stall which cost RM7 for each. So many people DM me on Instagram and asking the details about this place. I guess now you guys know where to hunt the seafood when you're in Malacca right?


Accommodation
Imperio Residence
Imperio Residence

When I'm in Malacca, I always like to book an Airbnb instead of a hotel. Why? Because the place is spacious and the price is reasonable! I had booked a newly built and renovated dual key unit at Imperio Residence. It is a short drive from Jonker Street, Dataran Pahlawan, and the Portuguese Settlement. Just across the street is a free shuttle bus to various tourist spots. 

It comes with two master bedroom and attached with a washroom which is perfect for 4 of us! The owner was friendly and asking us how is our staying once we had check-in so thumbs up for her.
