It is just a Chinese graveyard, you will see nothing except the graves, not sure it worth visiting for others, but it will be definitely a no to me.

Bukit China meaning Chinese Hill was the official settlement of the entourage that arrived with the Chinese Princess Hang Li Po, who was sent to Melaka to marry Sultan Mansur Shah. It was also the start of a close diplomatic relation between Melaka and China. Those from the entourage lived and died there so while there we saw many graves.... More

Bukit China is a well known cemetery in Melaka. It is also the oldest Chinese cemetery in Melaka, if not Malaysia.

Go in the evening when it is much cooler and wander around the ancient graves, some with very impressive examples of traditional Chinese grave architecture.

After running around the hill in early morning light. We tackled the hill in daylight. We were wary of snakes etc known to be present. But didn't see any. The tracks are a little rough, needing a little care. The view from the top is magnificent and well worth the slight effort to get there. Not a lot of information... More

The Chinese used this land as their burial ground. Those days they were not cremated the remains of a dead person instead it was buried. This seems to be the largest Chinese grave yard outside china. the oldest grave yard seems to be done about 400 years back. Very peaceful area.

This is one of the largest Chinese cemeteries outside China and consists of a mix of modern and old Chinese tombs. Besides the tombs it is a nice hilly park with many locals jogging there. From the top of the hill you get a nice view over the city and you can watch the sun going down from there. I... More

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.

My travel partner and me stumbled this place during our first trip to Melaka more than a decade ago. We didn't know how to travel around Melaka then and was walking around our hotel.
