    About Career

    Welcome to Melaka New Chinatown. To access our improved site,CLICK HERE   

    Melaka New Chinatown covers the streets of Jalan Kee Ann, Jalan Bunga Raya, Jalan Pasar Baru, Jalan Jawa, Jalan Munshi Abdullah and Jalan Bendahara. These streets are located to the eastern banks of the Melaka River. 

    This Melaka New Chinatown Portal and Business Directory is created to trace & document  the history of Melaka New Chinatown & her development  over the years.At the same time,we hope to encourage  locals and tourists alike to visit & shop in this unique part of Melaka City. 

    In the 1900s, new developments were carried along the eastern bank of the Malacca River. The  swampy land on this eastern bank, was developed into the new commercial area of Malacca Town.The "Central Market" was also built here in 1905 besides the river. Currently, this area is served by Jalan Bunga Raya, Jalan Kee Ann, Jalan Kampung Jawa, Jalan Pasar Baru,Jalan Munshi Abdullah and Jalan Bendahara. 

    The Central Market 
    With the "Central Market" built in this area around 1905, commerce grew rapidly along the streets of Jalan Bunga Raya and Jalan Kee Ann from 1930's. It developed gradually into the "New Chinatown of Malacca". The streets were narrow and  are renown for their infamous traffic jams as people flocked to the Central Market for their daily needs. 

    Unfortunately, in February 1988, the Central Market was demolished for re-development which did not materialised. The unique Central Market with its priceless architectural design was lost forever. To date, the land which housed this ill-fated Central Market remains undeveloped except as an open air car park. 

    Though the demolition of the Central Market was a great loss to the area, economic activities continued to this present day. Numerous shops & bazaars along the streets of Jalan Bunga Raya, Jalan Kee Ann, Jalan Pasar Baru, Jalan Kampong Jawa,Jalan Munshi Abdullah & Jalan Bendahara. cater for everybody, young and old. You can shop at Madam King's Departmental Store,  Malacca's 1st. Departmental Store or at Khelass Pasaraya, buy Chinese herbs, sundries, textile, ready-made garments, plastic pots & flowers, gold jewellery, joss-sticks and even obtain an undertaker's service from here! 

    Pasar Malam & Food Fare 
    At the same time, an open air hawker fair or "pasar malam" is open every night along Jalan Kee Ann for locals and tourists from 6.00pm until 11.00pm. Visitors can browse & buy watches, VCDs, cassette tapes, pens or casually watch street vendors selling their wares. 

    For food lovers, famous eating stalls are abundant.
