Bus from Singapore to Melaka (Malacca) is one of the favourite routes for locals, visitors and tourists because of Melaka’s historical sites and its distinctive and scrumptious local food and Nyonya food. Since Melaka was listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in July 2008, more tourists are flocking to Melaka to experience the city. There is no airport or train station in Melaka city, hence the only transportation mode is by bus from Singapore to Melaka.
Delima Express, KKKL Express and 707 are the top favourites for Malaysian who stays and works in Singapore. They usually travel by bus from Singapore to Melaka on Friday night and come back by bus from Melaka to Singapore on Sunday afternoon. They spend a weekend at hometown Melaka with their family.

As for local Singaporean, they like to spend a great weekend in Melaka for food and historical sites. They prefer to take coach from WTS, Luxury Coach, Transtar and Superior Tour, because they usually stop at major hotels in Melaka, like Equatorial Hotel, Hatten Hotel, Mahkota Hotel etc.
