My husband and I are seriously thinking about moving to either Port Dickson or Melaka through the MM2H Program. We'd like any information on either of these locations. We visited Penang in Dec/12 and all tholugh we really enjoyed it we'd like to live in a quieter area --- but we don't want to be too bored either.Are there expat/new commer groups to join to meet people? We've also started to look at housing in both areas and probably would go the rental route as it would give us more flexability. Input greatly welcome.
Am planninng to travel to Melaka from Klia in Dec. There will be 8 adults and 2 children. We are interested to hire a private van for the trip. Does anyone got any info on private van rental? Thanks in advance.

I will be in Melaka in April. May I get any suggestions here on how to get to Melaka city from LCCT airport. I know that nasional buses are here. But my flight arrives at 4 pm, and there will be no bus until 6 pm. It will be quite late for me. Do I have any alternatives? (eg. mini bus /van?) If I take a taxi, how much will it be?
Will be in Malaysia next month. Arrive LCCT, we(a family of 4) plan to take a taxi from LCCT to Malacca for 2 days. Then the next trip, will be Genting Highland. Intend to take an express bus from Malacca straight to Genting Highland. Try to surf the net to find an express bus from Malacca to Genting Highland but nil. Anyone who know or have taken an express bus from Malacca to Genting Highland, pls let me know which bus company provide the service.
I am planning on staying in Malacca for 4 days, and enjoy biking around areas. Are there shops that rent bicycles (non-motorized)in Malacca?? Names? Thank You.
We are a family of 7, planning a trip to Malacca in March. I could not make up my mind to choose between Casa Lago or Garden City Apartments. Please help to distinguish between them in term of location, cleanliness and safety. Cost is not an issue in this case. Cheers.
I will take a trip from Johor Bahru to Melaka on September 21st, 2009 and from Melaka to Kuala Lumpur on September 22nd, 2009. I get an information that is not easy to get bus ticket on that date.

I'm Kim frm S'wak planning to visit Melaka for 1 day trip. I'll be staying in KL. Can anyone tell me how is the cheapest way to travel around Melaka in a group of 8? The places tat I may visit r as in the website
Between the Grand Continental Hotel (Jalan Tun Sri Lanang)and the Emperor Hotel (Jalan Munshi Abdullah).. Which would you recommend? The pricing are compatible. I will be driving but I still prefer to stay close to the old section of Melaka town since I always find the one way road system of Melaka pretty confusing. Also we are there for only one night so prefer to be close to 'happenings' sites. Which hotel has better location, better view, better looking room and facilities, better breakfast? Thanks!
My family will be travelling to Singapore and Malaysia in november. We are planning to stay in Melacca for about 5 nights before heading for Penang.

Do you know of a familyfriendly beachresort nearby?
Is there maybe a familyresort in town with garden and swimmingpool? It is not necessary to stay at the beach since we are heading for Penang afterwards, but we need a pool!
