  • It is a modest house but after rehabilitation you can understand how it was built and how they lived in the old Melaka. I would recommend mostly to architects, designers, or interested in the architecture in general...

  • Loads of exhibits, hardly any labelled, even fewer labelled in English. Our guide was very well informed but spoke rapidly and rather softly, so was a bit hard to follow.  more »

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.
