Getting to Melaka from LCCT terminal Kuala Lumpur

Hi Guys,

I would like to know the most efficient way to get to Melaka from LCCT. Are there any bus stations that will bring us there? If bus is not an option, how much are the cabs? As much as possible I am looking for cheap transportation suggestions (if ever). How long is the travel time?

Also, are there any chances of getting a budget hotel at Melaka? Any suggestions pls?

Many thanks and appreciate in advance!

Hi raffy

You could view the list of top rated B&B / guest houses on this site. Recommended are Riverview GH, Riverside Paradise, Roof Top, Oriental Riverside, all well located with view of Melaka river and still within china town district.

You should look at hostelworld.com or agoda to book these guest houses. Please do note that some rooms are ensuite (with shower/bathroom attached), other rooms share bathroom which may be bothersome for some people.

Alex and mKara - please!

I had intended on getting a bus from LCCT to Melaka but AA has changed the schedule and we now arrive at 7.10pm instead of 12 noon. If we are delayed and miss the 8pm bus - skinny chance only anyway - and don't feel like waiting for the 9pm one, or can't get seats on it could you give an idea of how much a taxi would cost. ? Would be easier anyway, I'm thinking, with a late arrival now.

Many thanks for all your advice already noted.

A budget taxi will cost in the region of RM159 and can fit 3 people and limited luggage.

A premier taxi will cost in the region of RM218.90 and can fit 4.

For anything more than that, a family taxi will cost RM330.

I'm going to have to make this journey soon, in reverse. How long does it take for a taxi to get from Melaka to KL?

Dont panic, sometimes its really quick to get out of LCCT, and then just go straight to the bus and buy a ticket from the driver
