The Temasek Hotel is located in Ujong Pasir, next to Melaka’s bustling, picturesque Portuguese Settlement with its plethora of restaurants and nightlife. We are about 4 km from the center of Melaka, Malaysia’s oldest port, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008.
Here, you have easy access to historical sights, entertainment and shopping. It takes 10-15 minutes to drive to Jeti Syahbandar, the ferry terminal where Melaka’s Maritime Museum is located, to Jonker Walk with its antiques, arts and crafts shops, and to the vast Dataran Pahlawan mega shopping mall.
You can see tropical forest and exotic animals in Ayer Keroh, a 25-minute drive inland. There is also a planetarium and attractions for kids. For pretty beach resorts, drive north up the coast to Tanjung Kling, Pantai Kundur and Tanjung Bidara. Count 30 minutes to an hour.
