Modern-day Malacca is small, sleepy city that belies its wealth of history.
Malacca is by no means a small city, but exploring on foot is a good idea.
You got a point there. The opening sentence for Understand has the word "small" removed (at post time). 22.214.171.124 15:59, 24 April 2009 (EDT)
Links to external images
There are quite a few inline links to external images on a third party site - the images themselves are useful and relevant (although the site as a whole isn't). What's the policy/consensus on keeping them? 126.96.36.199 09:47, 7 April 2009 (EDT)
Eye On Malaysia
Could anyone update the Others section to include the ferris wheel named "Eye on Malaysia"? It used to be in Kuala Lumpur but has since moved to this place in 2008 or so. Yes, I admit that it is strange to introduce something "modern" amongst the historical features of Malacca, but it's still a tourist attraction. 188.8.131.52 15:59, 24 April 2009 (EDT)
As seen that Eye On Malaysia is currently not in service until further notice, there will not be any activity available, but merely a huge giant standing at the shore of Malacca Straits. By kititto 11:44, 12 August 2010 (GTM +8)
Contradiction. Taxis are friendly.... taxis are a rip off
I don't know which is true, but the second paragraph has what appears to be a egregious plug for a random taxi driver. I'll update the page after I visit in a few weeks if I am able to form an opinion.
Culling sleep and eat sections
I suspect this article has suffered from a lack of attn recently. It was clearly very good at one stage. I have started a makeover by culling the (very long and touty) sleep and eat sections. Touty entries and those without any useful information have been deleted. --Burmesedays 03:25, 1 April 2010 (EDT)
Ringo's Foyer blurb ripped from Lonely Planet SE Asia Guide
Can edit this myself as I'm staying there soon (13 Feb) but putting a note here in case anyone has first-hand experience of the place and is able to do an original write-up. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs)
price of metrobus from KL to Malacca is now 10 MYR (April 7 2014) at least for me :)
Article says that Malacca was founded in 1400, and converted to Islam in the 14th century, ie the 1300s. Can't be both.
