We also visited the Malacca Church, various museums (Cheng Ho, Navy museum) as well as the famous Jonker street and her night market

Is it safe for women to visit Malacca alone? Both sight seeing and hotel stay. Any places to avoid? Dos and Donts please.

Its been a looooong time since I traveled/explored alone.

I think Ramada's location not near to the shopping, eating and attraction.

Why not you stay at Hatten, Equatorial or in jonker street? There are many hotels from budget to 5 stars here. Shopping centre - palawan mall and attractions and jonker street all within walking distance.

If you stay at Ramada, I think you cannot walk must take transport.

Should be fairly safe to take taxi. Also depends on how you dress. But solo traveller, pls stay at Jonker area as others here hv suggested. Holiday Inn is another choice for you.
