Melaka (Malacca) Getting around

Melaka's small size means that most tourists opt to explore the town at their own pace by walking.  Hotels and guesthouses should have a complimentary city map for guests or the large"Melaka Street Map" with discount coupons costs 5RM.  Be careful when walking around Melaka as sidewalks are narrow, pedestrian crossings are few, and local traffic can be unpredictable.  

Another way to take in the tourist sites is by hiring one of the omnipresent trishaw drivers to pedal you around. With their decorated carts and loud music they're hard to miss and some drivers can be very persistent when trying to find a fare.  The trishaw tours are at a fixed price of 40RM per hour.  If you do choose to hire a trishaw, it's worthwhile to find a driver with clear English who can also give you some information about the sites that you visit.

The most comfortable way to travel around Melaka - particularly to the out-lying historic sites - is on the Melaka Panorama Sight-Seeing bus. This hop on/hop off shuttle service costs 2 RM per person for the single-decker bus or 5 RM for the double-decker bus.  Remember to keep your ticket because it is valid all day. This bus service stops at 22 sites around Meleka and a signs is clearly posted at each bus stop. The Panorama buses operate from 7:20am until 9pm with 30-45 minutes between buses.
