Yeap, I think you already know where is the famous Melaka Chinatown . Somewhere in Jonker Street and Harmony Street. The best area for walking. As you walk,you will not feel the heat as old shop houses will bring your imagination back in the past. As a living museum, the difference maybe new paint and technology. But the truth is, place that you are standing still serve it’s owner like 200 years ago. Look at all the classic furniture and picture of the heirloom.
When browsing the shops at Melaka China Town, seek for Tang House, if you are lucky they still have a room for you. A classic, a history you know like airwell, pitched roofs with Chinese tiles, and detailed brick work but they work with modern need. You think all in the house is a relic, fret not because it also has computers, as well as wifi for the guests and individual air conditioning. Hey you can cook too. They have a modern kitchen for guest. A true for travelers friendly guest house. For more info and rates just open the web address here.

A research stated that in recent recession, budget hotels have felt the effects of the recession significantly less. Well this is because their price are already low and they still can have the profit. Most expensive / 5 star hotel can’t simply cut their price to very low because the service is premium. But now the 4 to 5 star hotel also have created a value package, not to cheap but will encourage people to use their premium service with competitive discount and added value.
