Melaka were quite surprising having Chinese influences very apparent. A Chinese Buddhist Temple emerging from Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism is very apparent and a must to see. The street are very vibrant to buy different goods.

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

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.

Very crowded place, also in the night (especially if there's the night market). A lot of delicious food and snacks to try.
