Owner description: Mansions, temples and antique shops are packed into the narrow streets of the lively Chinatown district.
Reviewed 3 May 2018

A world heritage location, there are two main streets in China Town; Jonker Street (now called Jalan Hang Jebat) and Heeren Street (now called Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock). Start a walk of Chinatown from Dutch Square crossing the river bridge, turn left and then right into Heeren Street, which dates back to the 1750's. Stop at Number 8 on the right hand side, which is a heritage restored merchant's house. Continue to the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum. After the museum, continue along Heeren Street and turn right at the next junction. On reaching Jonker Street perhaps stop at the Geographer Cafe on the corner or turn right back towards Dutch Square. Take the next left, where you should see the green roof of the Kampung Kling Mosque. When you reach the mosque, you are in Temple Street. If you wish include a visit to the Cheng Hoon Teng Temple turn left or to return towards Dutch Square turn right. Allow 1-2 hours for this walk - or longer if you spend time in the museums.

Good to take a leisure walk around this area, but don't expect fascinating sights or buildings. Simple shops around to check out.

This is a street where Melaka's Chinese population lgathers and carry out their daily business & social activities. It's been this way since the 15th century!! Their living style and culture are still evident. Eat in the back alleys though -not the glitzy restrains. Check it out, it's worth the visit, try some local food, buy souvenirs and soak up the local culture.

There is so much to see and do in Chinatown. Colorful temples to visit, antique stores, lantern stores and then there is the food. Ohhhh, so much great food in this town. Day or night this is a great place to visit.
