This escape plan was planned as a short getaway from Singapore to a shopping and food paradise of Malacca which is just a few hours of drive away. It was a perfect one for a birthday celebration.

Budget nature: Cheap

Without flights, this trip was already affordable, coupled with a currency higher than Malaysia’s and affordable street food, this trip was cheap.

Complexity: Easy

Driving was pretty straight forward, Malacca wasn’t particularly big though streets can get busy. Of course there were concerns with cars burglary but common sense and being low profile was the way to go.
