Malacca is a peaceful little town in southern Malaysia. It was a great destination between two big cities; Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. The best ways to look around Malacca are bike ride and walk. One day, my friend Jenny and I went a long walk to Bukit China.
Bukit China, Chinese hill in direct translation, is a historic hill side of town of Malacca from Ming dynasty. It is a 250,000 square metres of barrial ground with over 12,000 graves and in fact, it is the largest Chinese graveyard outside China. Bukit China was a gift from sultan to princess Hang Li Po when they got married.
This hill offers majestic view of Malacca. Considering include walking around Bukit China in your itinerary when you are in Malacca.

I am planning a trip to Malaysia and was planning on hitting KL and then Ipoh, maybe I will add a few days and visit Malacca.
Hey Nathan, hope you are visiting Malacca. It’s really cool little town.
Wow, are all of those structures graves? They look like miniatures. I can’t figure out what the 4th photograph is. Is it full size or tiny. Very cool. We never made it to Malacca when we were in Malaysia.
That one was a miniature. Pretty cool, aye?
Amazing place. So many stories to be learned by visiting old graveyards. I’m glad that someone else asked about whether those were miniatures — I was wondering the same thing. Cool photos.
Thanks Cathy. That’s why we are going back to old places with a lot of history. I didn’t know that looks like miniature. Should add some titles for the photos 🙂
I somehow missed Bukit China while I was visiting Melacca. I must have been too busy eating…
That is a perfectly valid reason.
Nice set of photos and I’m loving the size.
Thanks Leigh! Yeah, those were cool, and I never thought that those can be seen as a real one. 🙂
Funny. Q & I have 10 days to spend between Singapore & Malaysia. We were told Melaka would be a good stop-over between the two cities. But this place looks like another great option! Digging the new redesign by the way!
Melaka (Malacca) is great place for sure. 🙂 Thanks for the good words! I like the design as well!
wow! i’m surprised that you’d found this place. As a Malaysian, i don’t even realized this historic place ever exist in Malacca..
Great sets of photos. Looks like a really peacful place too. Would love to go there, thanks for the information 🙂
Love these awesome, big photos! Experimenting with a new format?
Thanks Leslie! I developed a new theme function to make it bigger. Glad you like it!
What a great and interesting post. I think it is absolutely fascinating to see the remnants of past rule in nations, and not just to see the physical ruins and relics but to see how deeply entrenched that previous culture’s values and traditions still affect the country.
