  • The House was rebuilt in order to assert the architectural importance of heritage of the old city of Malacca. It is, of course, quite simply, there is no furniture, but the project is fascinating. We had the opportunity to meet Colin with whom we had a more than interesting conversation, not only on the architecture of the House and the surrounding streets, but especially on the challenges of the conservation of the heritage in the context of tourist massification. Colin is a passionate activist with is worth taking the time to share and learn about their knowledge and views on conservation of the historic heritage of Malacca. Our favorite!

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.
