Zheng He Duo Yun Xuan

Melaka City

A Shanghai-based auction house has funded this impressive gallery split between two large converted warehouses facing the Melaka River and entered from the path running alongside the water. Exhibitions (at which some of the works are for sale) change roughly every three weeks and focus mainly on Chinese arts and culture.

The alley separating the two buildings has a wall painted with one of the most colourful of Melaka City's street-art murals.
