Once we had sealed the exit of Singapore we crossed the bridge that joins both countries and a few kilometers later we stopped again. This time we collected everything and made the process of stamping a new visa in the passport. There were few people on the border and the operation was quick.
Once we got on the bus we resumed the road traveling through landscapes with hardly any towns or houses. An endless tide of palm trees and lush jungle near the ocean.
Melaka station is located almost 5 kilometers from the city center. You can get into a taxi that will cost you an average of 15 ringgits or get on bus number 17 (green) that will do the same service for just 1 ringgit.
The local bus station is located on the other side of the central station. It is best to follow the locals since almost everyone goes there and pass the taxi drivers.
Jalan Jalan HostelOn the recommendation of a German traveler I went to hostel Jalan Jalan on Jalan Kedni Emas street. When we stopped in the historic center of Melaka I found the tourist office and did not miss the opportunity to get a map of the city and ask for the hostel's address.
The Jalan Jalan hostel is located a couple of streets away from the river and has a blue door that is not easy to see. I found a single for 26 ringgits and I found it clean enough to stay a couple of nights and enjoy the city of Melaka more calmly. In addition, the owner - a boy named Sam - is very good people and in the hostel there is a good room to meet other travelers. Ideal for when traveling alone.
