Chinatown - Melaka, Melaka

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.

  • From the first steps in the neighborhood we're lost. We are in China, and more so when it comes to celebrate the last day of the Chinese new year. firecrackers and animations at will. Beautiful atmosphere. The retaus of all kinds and for all budgets.

  • Very crowded place, also in the night (especially if there's the night market). A lot of delicious food and snacks to try.  more »
  • Chinatown is different from what we are used to seeing. Past the bridge over the River from red square is a kind of quadrilateral on a relatively small area with buildings of historical and architectural significance across a few streets. We find the mosque and other temples as well as shops offering antiques and crafts, and of course food. I have been there in the daytime during the week and didn't find too many people, but a considerable car traffic along one of the roads, making it uncomfortable to go.
