Owner description: Mansions, temples and antique shops are packed into the narrow streets of the lively Chinatown district.

The best place to go and to stay while in Melaka. There you'll have great food, see some interesting houses and temple, cool street decoration - maybe with some lamps - and probably the best interaction with locals, which happen to be really friendly. I recommend you go exploring as much as you can.

This is where you'll find a concentration of shops and food places. The night market is not to be missed. Very busy and lively. Take cash with you as I didn't spot any easy access ATMs.

Cafes and bars line the streets as well. Good vibe, service can be a little hit and miss so just go with the flow.

Lots of antique shops which are very expensive but worth having a look at. Places to catch a snack while dodging the traffic and of course the temples.

Full of liveliness especially from evening onwards. Immerse yourself in the culture and street vibes of Melaka's chinatown.

While tired of walking, but the beauty of the culture is good to viewing. It is difficult for us to see Chinese culture that still remain here.
