The Equatorial is no more than two hours drive from KL (Straight down the E1 Highway towards Johor Bahru). The hotel is situated pretty central to Malacca town and is next to Carrefour supermarket. It has an outdoor restaurant attached outside called K5 where the food is very good (eat Al Fresco). You can take breakfast here if it is not included with your room. There are plenty attractions here to see from fortresses to ships and museums. Tri Shaw's are plentiful and are lit up at night playig music as they take tourists around. At night (Friday and Saturday) head for the famous Jonker Street where the road is closed to traffic and stalls appear selling food and all types of goods, many of which come from Indonesia, so barter on price. On Saturday nights be sure to walk to the far end of Jonker street where you will come across a Karaoke stage where people (mainly Chinese) get up to sing and dance. Chairs are provided to sit and watch (what a fantastic atmosphere). Sit and have a beer or tea /coffee whilst watching. Upon leaving Malacca, if you are driving a car then head up the coastal road to Port Dickson where you will pass through kampungs and see life as it is. This road will then take you to Sepang (Formula F1 Racing) and then back to KL.
