    Probably it’s spread across few buildings, it was empty most of the time, probably the emptiest we have even seen anywhere.
    Else decent place and a typical urban mall, nothing wrong in it.

    This gallery has amazingly beautiful artwork , sketches, prints, postcards and handmade soaps. We were lucky to walk in by chance when the artist was there. He and his son, also an artist, were so friendly and welcoming. It's a lovely, peaceful space. There was absolutely no pressure to buy but we did get a small, high quality framed print for a very fair price. Also, the Cafe right next door has fantastic coffee and a beautiful large mural inside.

    Small shop with a good and wide selection of unique handicrafts, run by a very friendly owner.

    They sell some lovely Temiar, Mari Mari n Penan weave items. I absolutely loved the colourful wood block prints, pottery and cushion covers.

    Mahkota Parade is near the city center with many stores and food options. There is Parkson department store inside this mall. We also had Tommy Roma's for dinner and the lamb ribs was very good.

    Good place, lots of parking space, not so congested, fresh and quiet.

    Unfortunately, no supermarket here. If there is a good supermarket here, I am confident the business will be good. It will bring many new customers here.

    Hope the management incorporate a supermarket here.

    We only came here to buy groceries at the supermarket and had lunch at Old Town Coffee. Alof of open space carpark amd sheltered walkway if you managed to get parking space nearby. Food options was okay like KFC and Nandos. Groceries was very well stocked.

    It’s good to be back in Melaka now that Covid restrictions between Singapore and Malaysia have been lifted. Much of Melaka remains unchanged from our last visit over 2 years ago, fortunately, although many businesses have yet fully reopen due to the lack of visitors.

    Was great to visit Malaqa House Museum and see a carefully maintained and unrestored example of a long Peranakan style house commonly found adjacent to Jonker Street. Many of these once private houses for the very wealthy have been gentrified and turned into hotels and restaurants. Not a bad thing, but Malaqa House stands out as it retains so many of its original features in unrestored condition, allowing you to see it as the original architect intended. For sure, some of the paint is peeling and many tiles are heavily worn thanks to several decades of use, but that is the charm of the place. Even on what was a very hot day, the three air wells along the building’s length allowed a cooling breeze to flow through the property illustrating that the designers knew how to keep the occupants cool without aircon!

    We were fortunate to spend some time with Grace Wong, the proprietor. She explained the buildings features, helping us understand how the expansive rooms would have originally been used, and also why this style of house was built long and narrow.

    Definitely recommended if you have an interest in the historical architecture of Melaka.

    I popped in to have a look initially to escape the heat, and received a lovely low pressure welcome and invitation to browse from Cliff at the front door. The store was described by an earlier reviewer as a Tardis - much bigger on the inside than the outside. That is the perfect description. The store goes back a long way, with a lovely internal courtyard, and huge stock to browse through.

    The contents are a fascinating mix of old and reproduction pieces. Cliff is completely transparent about which are antiques, and which are good reproductions. I thoroughly appreciate this honesty (thank you Cliff!). There is an eclectic collection of paintings, some quite quirky in a traditional style but modern themes. And some lovely porcelain pieces in the historic Peranakan (Malacca Straits Chinese) style. I did not investigate these further as I am not a collector, but am sure that Cliff would have been a gold mine of information if I had wanted to know more.

    I bought a lovely reproduction snuff bottle, framed in a minimalist cedar frame, and all carefully bubble-wrapped for transport. There is also a small collection of elegant jewelled fasteners (kerosang) for the traditional Peranakan lady’s top; in lovely bee, dragonfly, spider and the more traditional flower and leaf motifs.

    Highly recommend a stop to browse and look for something to take home from Malacca. Or just for a very pleasant chat and respite from the heat of the day. Many thanks Cliff, it was lovely to meet you.

    The pasar malam at Pahlawan Walk is conveniently located across Macdonald , myself and kids age range 3 to 14 yo visited this night market on a Monday after 11 pm and find that it is still quite vibrant with small crowd . Items on sales there is mainly the local snacks , cheap toys and non authentic clothings and shoes . It get boring for the kids after about 30 min walk. But all in all , it is still okay.

    There are two museum in this building. Admission fee RM3 for adult. Youth Museum is a bit boring. Art gallery on the first floor is much interesting
