“The Red Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

It's better to walk through this street at night. The light around turns to red. There are a lot of bars, cafes and restaurants.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

If you want to know a bit of the culture, this is worth a visit since they offer a variety-- from the local foods, local decors, to souvenirs, to fad, to almost everything. Must try to get there at the daytime and night time. Daytime you can find a lot from the shops then nighttime offers more, with a lot of sidewalk vendors you can haggle to. However, you can't expect a lot discount from them (since this is a known one of the tourist destination).

Best time to visit I think was the time when we get there, Chinese New Year. This street is very busy and very happy to get in. :)

“Nice night market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

It's a nice night marker, with lots of nice food, goodies and can even see talented people sing and dance near the pubs. The place is quite safe to travel even at very late night. A must to visit if you go Malacca. Problem is not easy to find carpark.

“Touristy street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Quite a nice walk down the street. Things sold are touristy. Tried the famous assam laksa in the middle of the street, the taste is not authentic.
