“The Chinese New Year celebration in Melaka, especially at Jonker Walk, is merrier than in other states, with many red cloth and lanterns hanged to bring excitement to the celebration,’ he added.


Lim said Melaka was also a destination for tourists from China because of the existing Malaysia-China bilateral ties, especially in trade and tourism.
