    - just some nameless stalls in Jonker Street: Something to bring back home :)

    by niksh Updated Jul 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    Address: Jonker Street - somewhere middle

    These are magnets. Cute arent they? Miniature clogs. Two magnets for one price

    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.

    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.
