My sister and I went for an overnight trip to Melaka.
We stopped for tea at Ayer Keroh Restoran Jejantas, one of the few that exists in Malaysia. It’s a bridge across a highway that hosted some restaurants and shops.
Melaka is just about two hours drive from Puchong.
Since we arrived way before our check in time, we visited Mini Malaysia which is on the way to town center. Please note that foreign tourist pays more than double for an adult entry ticket.
