I think this place is not really worth a visit unless you have a lot of time in Malacca. It's quite far to walk and there's not much to see actually. It's basically an old chinese cemetery with some history according to the locals. I will not recommend this place if you have a tight schedule.

The hill is accessible through various small path round the hill or the main path near the school. Usually crowded in the early morning and evening with joggers around running through the pathway and... More

The Bukit Cina market is a place the old folks converge every day. The market is called Eng Seng Market and was built by Gan Hong Hoe in 1953.

Wandering up the Bukit China I was intrigued by all the very old Chinese burial places. It was also pleasant with the green grass and trees. From the top of the hill one can see all over Melaka and get one's bearings. It's like a 3D map laid out for you to see.

Again, this is an old Chinese cemetery hill. Do not go on your own be it daylight or at night. Come in two or more. There are many small road lead up to the hill depending on which side you started. Good place to jog around. Many elders came for morning and evening walk with their family. Normal walk around... More

It was a very good visit nice location with lots of tourists hanging around and purchasing goods. Many options from clothing gifts items, stationary and much more. Food selection was also equally good. You need bargain and you could get a good deal.

Reminds of the chinese history of melaka. The small lanes (built for the carts and walker bys), old house settings built wall to wall, nice frontal architectures, all take you into a ride of the past. The whole trip might take around 15mins.

Also known as Chinese Hill, it is the largest graveyard outside of China. It houses the graves of earliest Chinese settlers and is the ancestral burial ground of Melaka's Chinese community.
