    Tan Kim Hock Product Centre: Local Food Products

    by mojo1980 Written Jun 28, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food products sold here are locally produced and very popular with visitors. They include durian paste and dried mangoes.

    They also make durian chendol or coconut chendol. But it is not that good.

    Only problem is that it is not within the main tourist spots. You have to maybe make a 15 - 20 mins walk from the main town area.

    Apart from checking out all the interesting historical relics and buildings , a trip to Malacca’s shopping complexes can be a fun outing too . Mahkota Parade , having won the Malaysia Tourism Gold Awards in 1994/95 for Best Shopping Complex , is one place you should visit when in town .

    Jonker Street: Shops with Character

    by f8stop Updated Feb 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are innumerable shops along jonker street that are a must-visit. The set-up, concepts and decors of the shops alone are enough to draw buyers inside. And sometimes (even if we don't find anything we need to purchase) we really couldn't help but linger as there were just so many things to see.

    The items are also quite affordable. I bought a hand-crafted pair of earrings for my mom which costed RM 4 only. (when i first saw it i thought it would cost me around RM 20. what a bargain!)

    Mahkota Parade: Golden Era of a Shopping Mall

    by Aidy_p Updated Dec 22, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mahkota Parade was the pride of Melaka in the 90s. I remembered that I was awed by the size of the mall when I was there more than 10 years ago. But when I was there recently, the shopping mall seemed as if it was living on its past glory. Spoilt doors were not fixed, leakages were not mended.

    It did not look like the owners were not ready to put in more money to spruce up the shopping mall. Maybe they realised that they will not be able to compete with the newly opened Dataran Pahlawan Mall, Tesco, and Carrefour.

    Still, the shopping mall offers visitors with a wide variety of food, fun and shopping.

    This two-storey shopping mall also comes with a cinema for tourists who want to catch the latest movie at a snip.

    Jonkers street: Antique anyone?

    by mary2u99 Updated Mar 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the place to check out some collector’s item and the best places to hunt and bargain for antiques.It is important to note that some antiques require clearance from the Director-General of the National Museum of Malaysia to be brought out from the country. Usually antique dealers will be able to advice purchasers of such items. Most will help buyers to fill in official clearance forms and forward them to the museum authority. You are advised to ask the dealers the procedures from the relevant authority.

    What to buy: Authentic artifacts and relics, some dating as far back as 300 years, can be found here. Chinese porcelain from the Sung, Ming or Ching dynasties as well as 17th century Dutch and 18th century Japanese porcelain. Indian brassware, Chinese brass irons, and intricately carved Chinese rosewood furniture inlaid with mother-of-pearl can also be found here.

    What to pay: from RM50 and over

    Dataran Pahlawan: From Historical Field to Shopping Mall

    by Azri_Azmi Written Nov 18, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dataran Pahlawan Mall is the latest mall now in town. Being constructed in the historical field of Dataran Pahlawan itself, this mall looks impresive and promising.

    Many shops inside this mall selling varieties of items. Choices of restaurant also are in this mall.

    Easy access to Banda Hilir Historical Zone plus there is a beautiful fountain inside this mall being carved with Melaka historical events all around.

    Mahkota Parade: Visiting a Mall

    by Azri_Azmi Written Nov 18, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mahkota Parade is among the pioneer modern concept mega mall established in Melaka. Situated in strategic Banda Hilir, its surely a hotspot in the weekend.

    Many shops are inside this mall includes of departmental store, boutiques, restaurants etc. It is a 2 storey shopping mall.

    During weekend, this mall is kinda crowded with visitors from all over includes local even. The traffic to enter the mall will be jammed and hard to find a parking space either.

    This is still the best mall in Melaka yet but in front of it the Dataran Pahlawan Mall is recently being opened and its surely will have to compete for the best mall in Melaka.

    Orangutan House: Monkey t-shirts

    by martin_nl Written Oct 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place can't be missed really. The exterior of the building is quite loud and so are the t-shirts and the art for sale in Orangutan House. The house exhibits art by the local artist Charles Cham. When I was in Melaka it was the Chinese year of the monkey and there were some beautiful t-shirts for sale. I should have bought one, since I'm a monkey too according to the Chinese. Too bad I didn't purchase one, because it would have been a great souvenir.

    Malaqa House: Antiques and gallery

    by martin_nl Updated Oct 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Malaqa House is situated in Jln Tung Tan Cheng Lock. A street lined with small unique shops and galleries. At Malaqa House you will find a combination of antiques, a gallery and a shop. It is great to look around here and admire all the small souvenirs. They aren't your typical souvenirs where you can buy a miniature of the Petronas Twin Towers, or flags of Malaysia, but more unique souvenirs. Some are handmade. The prices aren't exactly cheap, but what you see is all beautiful!

    San Shu Gong (Third Grand-uncle's Store): Be-Teh-So Biscuits

    by chatterley Written Sep 6, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This store (San Shu Gong) sells almost the same array of products as Tan Kim Hock, but they pay more attention to packaging. I bought these be-teh-so biscuits at one of their stores in the Makohta Shopping Mall (Level One). These biscuits are made from wheat flour, cooking oil, sesame, maltose, sugar, salt and onion. The outer layers of the pastry is flaky and the filling inside is sweet and sticky. Yummy!
