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.

I just went there on my own as a single woman. I got followed by a guy. He started talking to me which I ignored and turned to head back out of the park. He followed me again, touched me. After shouting against him he luckily bagged off, maybe just because we were not far off the entrance/exit, but he... More

Although there are displays in the temple at the foot of the hill explaining the controversial attempts by the government to remove the graves and develop the hillside, since the opposition won out in this case and saved the site, the hillside itself is now a peaceful spot containing countless graves, old and new. Supposedly the oldest grave on the... More
