Some history of Melaka to be learned at this place. Nothing much here if you are not a history lover. This place is located just beside a road. It was surprisingly crowded and there were many fruit stall at this place.

This hill/ park area is an old Chinese cemetery. A little out of the centre of Melaka but if you can get there, it's a good place for a morning walk/ exercise. Quiet, calm, not too much traffic noise and a most enjoyable start to...More
