Malacca City Shopping

Browsing through Malacca’s diverse blend of shopping venues is somewhat of an exhausting activity. However if you’ve got a yen to pick up some truly authentic Malaccan souvenirs, this tiny town is the best place to do it. Some of the items you can get here include Nyonya ‘clogs’ – traditional all-wooden Dutch designs – Southeast Asian and Indian clothing, handmade tiles, charms, crystals, antiques and more.

You can choose to walk the streets and visit the small boutique stores that specialize in kitschy knick-knacks and genuine Nyonya products or take a trip to Malacca’s biggest shopping malls – Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall. The malls offer more upscale stores with an extensive line of brand outlets while the trick to remember as you’re walking the streets is to know your stuff and to haggle.
