Malacca, Feb 27th, 2011

The next day we had to get up early again, and head to the hotel's private ferry terminal. Amusingly enough, our ticket wasn't valid for this ferry either, but no one checked, so we got on anyway. We never actually did use the ferry from the company we bought the ticket. We caught the 9 o'clock bus to Malacca, which went via Ipoh, KL, and several other places, before getting in around 7.30 in the evening. We then caught a bus from the bus station into town (the number 17 to the clock tower, if you ever find yourselves there), and took a room for the night in the Hereen House.

We could not have chosen a better day for our visit. Sunday night is street market time in Malacca, and our hotel was at the end of the main street they close for the markets. We spent the evening walking through the markeet, and ate at the Famosa Chicken Rice Ball restaurant, before heading back to the hotel. Unfortunately I was not in the mood for taking photos after spending over 10 hours on a dodgy bus, so I missed the oportuinities for lots of photos from the market.

The hotel is quite a pleasant one, run by a English lady and her local husband and has views from the rooms over the river. They were both friendly, and the lady was very knowledgable about transport on to Singapore.
