Two hours from KL is the coastal city of Malacca – and a lovely day trip. Our return bus tickets cost about 27 RM ($8 CAD)
Malacca has changed many hands from Portuguese, to Dutch, then British, Japanese, and finally Malaysian. The town has a distinctly European feel to it with Portuguese egg tarts. We arrived just in time for a splendid lunch of a smoothie bowl and ice coffee. Then a leisurely stroll through the quiet streets, a massage to rest our feet and enjoy some air con, curry and rice for dinner, then back on the bus to KL.
