Geomax in Malacca

Melaka is one of the best cities in Southeast Asia. Hugely undervisited...only a handful of whites here, and Chinese tourist numbers still far below 2019 levels. Still, there are a fair number of Chinese young people here ahead of the New Year. The huge hotel supply means there are some really good deals available...my 12th floor executive suite in a brand-new highrise overlooking the riverfront promenade cost $20.30/night after taxes and fees.

There are dozens of night markets and dining areas all around the city, and the riverfront promenade has many bars, with beer prices in the $2-3 range for a bottle of Tiger or Carlsbad. Melaka is a very musical city, and the food selection is superior to Kuala Lumpur, IMO. You can get so many different types of food here in so many different settings. Most of the locals are very welcoming to foreigners, even if their English isn't the best. While some of the streets are less pleasant to walk along, the historic downtown has a plethora of non-motorized pedestrian spaces, which even the motorbikes respect here.

In short, Malacca mogs.

    Agreed that Melaka is nicer overall than KL, even just because it’s got a bit of historical character.

    Food up in Penang is better than either Melaka or KL, though, IMO. The Penang region is really the birthplace/epicenter of almost everything we think of as Malaysian food (and by extension, Singaporean and Straits Chinese food).

    But it’s a lot more touristy, of course, which has its pros and cons. And maybe a bit grungier.

      Probably more Thai tourists up there in Penang, versus Singaporean visitors down here. So far I've only seen one Thai license plate, in Kuala Lumpur...it's surprising how few Thais make their way down here.

      Just give up, theyre even more stuck up and worse than white women at this point. Even the hookers have massive attitudes now.

      I agree bro. American girls in summertime coastal villages and mountain towns put off much more friendly vibes on the street than these dolled-up, snooty Asian cuties do. Plus, white beauty mogs Asian beauty any day. No yellow fever for me. That being said, I've been very satisfied with all the other aspects of spending the winter in SEA (climate, food, lodging, value for cost, safety). Beats Latin America all around.

      luv me Melaka
      luv me that tourist trap boat in the centre of town
      luv me the food
      luv me making frens and learning how to kite fight

      this is not a cooming town

      Melaka has so many unpretentious little eateries surrounding the historic center. The Malay places are often open to 2 AM or 3 AM, with music playing and a good crowd of diners socializing. There are also many joints open from 6 AM - 2 PM for morning people.

        Having a beer on the river is pretty comfy but it's a much smaller town compared to Penang, there's not really much to do

          Yeah, it's best if you are a low-energy person who likes chilling out, hanging around and wandering through the crowds on the streets.
          Back in my executive suite, 11th floor this time. It's been more sunny lately, but temps are still very enjoyable. Never over 90 F, never under 75 F. A steady tropical breeze means you rarely get too sweaty with the high humidity.
          Sadly, the minor durian season is drawing to a close, so it's getting more difficult and expensive to get the fruits.

        I get the impression you either went to a first world country like Taiwan or went to Bangkok and tried picking up literal prostitutes.

        Cope. Youre not getting any K-Dolled up porcelain Asian cuties without either being a 20-something year old KPop pretty boy or betabuxx maxxing richgay. If you are neither you can expect to go home with only your hand every night, even if youre a young white chad (with no money).

    You can pick from both Chinese and Malay women here. Of course, its a legal requirement to convert to Islam to marry any Malay woman. The Chinese are more modern-minded. Most guys would choose Singapore for chasing girls, as it is more liberalized in that respect.
    A full footlong roti john is only $2.50. Crispy fried beef patty and shredded lettuce inside, covered with thousand island dressing, mayo, ketchup, and cheese sauce (on the outside for some reason). What a delicious mess.
