Chinatown - Melaka, Melaka

(550+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Landmark
Walk the streets of an old district of the historical town at Chinatown - Melaka. The well-preserved Chinese architecture complements the bustling and thriving atmosphere of the main street. Stop into a restaurant to enjoy some authentically Chinese cuisine and listen the hum of the shoppers passing by, then head into the main commercial area yourself to try your hand at haggling for trinkets, souvenirs, and oddities from across the globe. The temples and clan houses present some of the best-preserved architecture here: scope them out down the small alleys that lead off from the main thoroughfares. Before you head to Melaka, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Melaka travel itinerary planner, to make sure you see all that Melaka has to offer, including Chinatown - Melaka.
