Went through the Chinatown as part of city site seeing. It seems very old, a historical place. Not much happenings as we expected in a place like Chinatown. There are small shops that sell souvenirs. This is very close to Jonker Street where we went for the night market and it was nice and crowded.

Very good place for street shopping but highly crowded. You need a lot of patience to walk across the road.

Lots of bargain to be found. Crowded over the weekends. Can see new products or food to try and taste. Now got escooter to rent per hour so that no need to walk but need to look out for traffic.

The heart and soul of Melaka is found here. Museums, restaurants and general ambience all add to the experience. The Baba Nonya cultural mix was inspired by Chinese immigrants and the power and money that came with them so you will find some of the best restaurants and museums in this area

The Chinese district of Melaka is a large area near the main square. It runs along the river and is quite large. There are many old shop streets with restaurants, stores, small hotels and a Chinese temple. This area represents a large and historic community in this city. This is well worth a stroll through.

Nice place to visit for Durian Cendol, a dessert and some Baba Nyona dishes and Chinese cuisine. A cool place for couples.
