just a tip given by one of the friendly fruit seller uncle at one of the R&R along NSH:
WIth the long nevernding roads that awaits you, im sure anyone would be tempted to speed.
How do you know when its safe to speed? look at Tour Coaches.
if you notice that the tour coaches are speeding, say about 110-130km/h then its probably safe to speed along with them.
but if you notice that they are keeping it 90km/hr.. then you better stick to the speed limit. which is 110km/h (i think).
reason being that these coach drivers all are connected through walkie talkies, and they will update all in their walkie talkie range if there's any cops.
Not sure how reliable is this tip.. however once i accidentally tuned in to the coach drivers conversation on my walkie talkie.. but didnt really understand what they were saying.
eat pizza at coconut house, very nice! it is behind jonker street
Norh-South Highway, exit Ayer Keroh (pls note that there is no exit that say 'Melacca', following sign board which says 'Bandar Raya' which means City and you will reach the famous ruin of St. Paul Church. That is the city centre
Get a GPS
There are few things you that is a must eat which is not mentioned here, satay celup at Capitol or Ong Kim Swee (I personally like the one at Capitol) and pork satay at Jalan PM4, which is a branch from Syed Abdul Aziz. And if you like cendol, stall 88 at Jonker is very good, but lots of people. Average que time for the good food in Melaka is around 30-45 mins.
Welcome to Melaka..
If you are coming from south, maybe you can try to exit at JASIN/MERLIMAU exit.. at about kilometer 180. It just 1 exit before AYER KEROH. During weekend or PH, usually there will be heavy traffic and you might caught in jam in between Ayer Keroh tol towards town.
bro Tantalize, dont need to rent a malaysia car lah.. there are so many sg car in malacca... furthermore if you park at crowded area..then most likely you are safe..just that.. few dents at your side door due to next car open door toooooo widely.
Enjoy your trip and dont worry too much about TP/Police or theif..as Malacca is quite a safe place.
yup they are very high-tech now.. they even have evo!! I saw it on the road.. 4 of them!! look super nice with the headlight, siren light! Make me want ot join the police force.... so bro here... dont try to out run the police..they have evo now!
Polis there are not bodoh. No one believe you come in holiday without money. No RM, give S$ lo.... Normally they will stop both Spore and Msia cars. As long as you speed, you promp to kena. No matter which country cars, all speeding cars are their $$$. Just that Spore car are richer cos they might get some S$ or higher kopi price. Moreover not all Polis accept kopi $$$. If you suay suay give kopi $$$ and they are from Bukit Jalil, then you for sure kena 2 tickets. "Beri Rasuah cangkung dalam lokap".
So... to play safe, drive below 110km/hr.
If you wanna excitement, then drive 180km/hr or faster. Pls take note there will be some protons faster than you at 180km/hr.
And also if you drink don't drive. If you drive, don't drink.
Drive carefully. Enjoy....
unless u drive on midnight.. or 3-4am...less vehicles and maybe no traffic police.. haha i tried for 190kmh until malacca.. and its fun...
upsss anyway, beware of air hitam exit and air keroh exit...police always station their speed trap things there...

Hm...speeding, avoid TP, bribery or any sort of violation is not a good advice IMO But then it's very tempting espcially in big & straight NSH
However I seriously urge TS to keep to 110kmh, it seems like he is not very experience in M'sian road....he could easily be intimidated by those crazy drviers....including those Aeroliner coaches
