Start point: Kuala Lumpur (KL) home
End point: Port Dickson (PD) Sea Front Hotel (RM85 per night)-- www.pdhotelseafront.com/
Total distance: 109km
For the route from Kuala Lumpur to Port Dickson can be vary, so I can only show the place we past by.
In between, we stop by Sepang town have our lunch-- Ah Fai Chicken rice (Restoran Keak Fui)
The food is quite good, and the boss is very supportive and chat a lot with us. Unfortunately we have our 1st tire burst after lunch, yet luckily is not at middle of road, so I can repair under the shade and have tire pumped at near by motor shop.
The room is clean, facing the sea view, decent queen size bed, A/C, water heater, wifi provided.
We parked our bikes at the lobby area and locked, because we were staying at 1st floor, and there is no lift. Of course, if you worry about your bike, you can put in your room.
There are not much restaurant to choose in walking distance. So, we simply settle our dinner at near by mamak (Hassan Murtabak) and surprisingly the Nasi Goreng Kampung is pretty delicious! Thumbs up!
After all, we got ourself a can of beer and sit beside the seaside, relaxxxxxxx~~~
DAY 2 & 3
Start point: Port Dickson (PD) Sea Front Hotel
End point: Melaka Chong Hou Hotel (RM60~70 per night)-- http://www.virtualtourist.com/hotels/Asia/Malaysia/Negeri_Melaka/Melaka-1281809/Hotels_and_Accommodations-Melaka-Chong_Hoe_Hotel-BR-1.html
Total distance: 85km
The road we took from Port Dickson to Melaka is via route 5 all the way and connected to M143.
Half way, we detour to the Eagle Ranch Resort, a wonderful to stay but it was another 25km away from the Sea Front Hotel.
There is a virgin beach behind the resort, I took a morning swim there with my bike pant on! hahahah~awesome!
According to our GPS, nearby Kuala Sungai Baru, there is a shortcut crossing between M143, after a detour checking out the route, it was the army camp, they show no mercy for cyclist to pass through. So, we were forced to take the longer road to continue.
Yet, lost and gain, we spotted a fruit stall selling lots of fruits! Well, let me tell u, WATERMELON is a wise choice while you cycling. It contain a lots of juice compare to other kind of fruit and it can cold down our body quick and long lasting.
After a long ride without stop, we decided to stop at Donald & Lily restaurant to have our lunch. We ordered their signature cendol and some other side dishes.
Then, we had a great conversation with the boss, Mr. Donald. He is a funny guy =)
Our guesthouse is just behind the Jonker Street, facing a unique mosque, Masjid Kampung Kling. This is a perfect spot to stay. Everything is just walking distance away.
I did read a good blog post by Ah Xian, http://www.axian.my/axians-food-adventure/item/121--old-malacca-maps
We stayed 2 days in Melaka because Melaka town have so many food to eat and place to go.
Wonder how are we going around the jonker street at day time? Cycle again?? NO!
We rent the electric scooter for RM25 each bike. It can last for 20km ride, time not limited. Top speed 25km/h. --
It was fun. MUST TRY!
.......................we ate a lot until night time and met new friend from Taiwan.
Start point: Melaka Chong Hou Hotel
End point: Muar Town
Total distance: 50km
After two days stop at Melaka town, we continue our journey to Muar town via route 5 again. 50km was a short ride and relax one, so we did detour few time and go very slow, just enjoy the view along the way ^^
In between the border of Melaka and Johor, there was a crystal clear river crossover and we decided to swim again even the people there said possibly crocodiles might appear!!!
After crossing another big river, we reached Muar town and meet up with our family, ended our cycling tour there. Then we continue move on to Singapore by car...no more cycling...hahaha~
