    by machomikemd Updated Jun 24, 2014
    4 more images

    If you want to shop for souvenirs and local crafts and handicrafts and don't have time to go to the Cheaper Mall Medan Samudera beside the Maritime Museum (which is actually close by and is nearer to the Menara Taman Sari Melaka Tower), then you can proceed to this big Mall as it has an entrance along the Jalan Kota just before the A Famosa Fortress and where you can shop in an air-conditioned environment.

    but expect the prices of the local goods and stuffs to be higher than at the Medan Samudera and even along the souvenir shops along Dutch Square and Jonker walk as this is a Mall after all and the mall tenants pay higher rent.

    You can then proceed to the Menara Taman Sari (Melaka Tower) which is a few steps away from the main entrance to the Mall along Jalan Merdeka.

    Opening Hours: 10am-10pm (Mon-Sun)

    What to buy: they have a wide selection of local crafts, souvenir stores, International Fashion Brands like Bossini, Giordano, Nautica, Charles & Keith, etc. a 24 hour Mc Donalds, restaurants, even a movie house cineplex and a coral them park, the coral land.

    What to pay: most stalls have fix pices but some allow haggling

    Aeon or Tesco - NOT Giant!: Self catering/long stay supermarket Shopping

    by lifemagic Written Apr 18, 2014
    Aeon from the bus.
    4 more images

    If you're staying long term in Melaka, then there are three supermarkets for self-catering. By far, the best is Aeon (also called Jusco) which someone has already recommended. Just beyond it (exit and turn left) is Tesco. There's another domestic supermarket in town called Giant (in Dataran), but it's only for emergencies, i.e. horrible. Half the food on the shelf is rotten, manager check your shopping and tells you off if you've used too much plastic, blaring music and loud advertising over speakers etc.

    What to buy: Basicallly, fresh stuff like fruit and veg is nicest in Aeon, and a little but cheaper in Tesco.

    Aeon has an organic section right to the left as you walk in the main entrance (where the baskets are) and there's oats, pesticide free veg, natural coconut oil etc.

    Beyond the supermarket, out the back, there's a whole mall including a cinema (cold aircon though).

    Tesco is essentially a slightly downmarket version of the same thing (though smaller and not as nice).

    What to pay: Less than in the west. Generally Tesco's going to be cheaper but I noticed there's a lot of varience week to week in fruit and veg prices here so don't get set on one thing, check the price each time. Local things are cheaper of course, especially nice and cheap in Melaka are the pink grapefruit (about two ringet for a big one), pumpkins are a good deal if you can cook. If you're staying long-term there's a steamer for sale for about twenty usd on the floor upstairs and it can cook up little bits of fruit.

    NYONYA HERITAGE

    by ancient_traveler Written Aug 19, 2012

    One might initially be discouraged by the shut metal gates of this quaint little shop located along a stretch of antique and curio peddlers. Well, do not be. Show up at the doorstep, ring the doorbell, and one will be attended to by a smiling man with a wealth of knowledge and experience in making beaded shoes and slippers, the footwear of choice for generations of Nyonyas. A veteran cobbler and collector of antique Nyonya shoes, his made-to-order crafts do not come cheap, though, costing from a couple of hundred ringgit, and require two to three weeks before they are ready for collection.

    Open Hours: Mo to Su from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PM

    What to buy: Kebayas

Many artifacts and authentic antique items are available at more than 15 antique shops lining the busy streets of Jonker Street, affectionately known as the "street of antiques" and is well known among the international antique collectors. The street is named Jalan Hang Jebat today. Along the streets, one can find houses built in the 17th century, still standing strong and housing generations of Malaccans.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Little Fish-like Waffle

    After a long walk along Jonker Street, you might just want to rest your feet at this local delicacy stop. Strategically located at the entrance of Jonker Street, the shop provides all tourists young and old some respite from the heat since there are seats and the place is fully air-conditioned.

    What to buy: Must try - Durian chendol. You can get this within the premises of San Shu Gong. The shop wihtin a shop is called Lao Qian Ice Cafe.

    Inside San Shu Gong, you can purchase all your Malaysian goodies - from black sesame biscuits to local cream puffs.

    What caught my eye was the way they ingeneously produced those little fish-like waffle. Everything was automated - the turning of the mold to the unloading of the waffle. Cool!

    Jaya Jusco

    As an associate of the AEON Group of Japan, the Jusco department store is among the first international retail outlets operating in Melaka since 1991.

    What to pay: About average price, go during sale for more bargains.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This large, partly subterranean so-called megamall sits at the foot of St Paul's Hill and so is convenient should you wish to take a wander around some shops after sightseeing. As well as the shops, there's also a large Carrefour hypermarket, cinema complex, entertainment/games area and food court.

    Along the Jonker street, you should find stalls that sell magnets and other souvenirs. Just look for stalls selling fridge magnets and/or woodcrafts.

    What to buy: Some magnets from Melaka is unique. You can buy magnets that has cultural values, such as handmade magnets that look like a pair of clogs (or better still, terompah) - made of wood. It's small simple, easy to bring back. If there werent any word of melaka (or malacca) written on the magnets you can request the seller to write it down for you.
    There are many designs to choose from.

    What to pay: 4-6 Ringgit - depends on the size
