    The tour was a really good choice when you visit the museum. But, you have to pay attention to the group tour schedule here. The tour guides are very friendly and will give you very informative information in the interesting way. A recommend place to go when you were in Malacca.

    Great place to learn about chinese-malayan (keturunan/peranakan) cultures & traditions. You can see the beauty of two traditions inculturation here. You will feel a rich old tradition ambience at the first step you enter this place. You can't take photos inside the museum but you can buy some souvenirs at the gift shop.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
