“China town Malacca”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

If you want to go see stores on both sides of the street lined with Chinese stores with cheap chines products, then you are in the right place. But if you are looking for a cultural experience, you are much better going to Dutch square, the Portugese castle, walk the streets near the river.

“Shop and Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Shop till you drop. Eat till explode. =) Great for food hunters and photography lovers. Buy local delicaies like Aik Cheong Coffee (near Jonker Stage), pineapple tarts, chinese cookies, Nyonya delicacies, etc.

“Living treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

One of those places where every day you find something new and interesting. It can be another little coffee place or restaurant, perhaps a temple or boutique. Who knows? After 6 days we had only scratched the surface. On the last morning we happened by the Chinese Buddhist temple whilst an open air cremation was on the go. We stayed in Chinatown and did not regret that decision for a minute. Everything is within walking distance. Go up market at Hard Rock Café or Casa Del Rio or forget it and get into the little places around town - better really and half the cost. This is one of those places where the stress just rolls off you (except for night market nights which may not be everyone's cup of tea - but worth doing the once). Get away a bit from Jonkers Street too as there are plenty of interesting vignettes elsewhere around the area. Explore and enjoy!!
