“Boring”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Same stuff.. Go there if you are looking for antique.. Not much to see or buy. The sales ppl were not even friendly so why spend Time or money there?

“A little lacking compared with Chinatown elsewhere”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Perhaps my expectations were a little high but compared with Chinatown in cities elsewhere there really wasn't much here.

Little India was more interesting and had better food.

“Rich experience”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

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.

“Jonker St”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

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.
