Traditional wooden houses

What we say: 3.5 stars

Located along the west bank of the Melaka River, Kampong Morten is a collection of traditional Malay wooden houses.

Many were built in the 1920s, but have been beautifully restored if a bit tackily decorated (picture roofs tiled to resemble the Malaysia flag). You can get a glimpse from the Melaka River Cruise, or walk over for a closer look and a chat with the friendly residents.

One house known as Villa Sentosa has been turned into a living museum with cultural relics like Malay wedding chairs and costumes.

Admission is technically free, but you will be asked to make a donation.

Villa Sentosa is open daily 9:00-17:00, or whenever the owner is around, T: (06) 282 3988.
