Hi Lyn

You can get taxis quite easily at designated taxi stand at the entrance of shopping centers and at beginning of Jonker Walk and dutch square. The problem is how to get a decent fare.

Most drivers who only get few businesses a day would rather ruin the taxi market further in melaka by overcharging. I would say, the asking rate is around RM80 to RM150, the journey is more than 1 hour. You may get lower rate at Melaka Sentral station as there is an outstation (interstate) taxi station.

Otherwise, stay overnight instead or take a bus although I cannot tell you the frequency and frequent stops for pick up of these awful local buses. In one word, Melaka buses and taxis are a disgrace as the government wants to protect certain group of people.

Hi

Thank you for the information I was worried that taxi drivers would not want to go to Port Dickson and we would be stranded there but it is good to see we can get back and having the approximate cost is helpful as well. It does seem expensive in KL you can get a taxi for three hours sight seeing for that sort of money but we really want to see Malacca we have seen so many photos of it and it looks interesting. Thank you for that info.
