Malacca is the third smallest Malaysian state after Perlis and Penang. It is located on the southwest outskirts of Peninsular Malaysia. It is about 230km away from Singapore. If you were to drive, it would take about 2.5 hours.
UNESCO has recognized Malacca as a World Heritage City. Indeed, there are many beautiful historical buildings in Malacca. Each shophouse has a story to tell, a history to be remembered and a character to be known.Courtyard@Heeren is boutique hotel that has only 15 unique rooms. Courtyard@Heeren used to be a shophouse. After renovation, each room is designed with the Peranakan style elements in mind. Each room is personalized with a Chinese name. Given that there are only 15 rooms, it is usually fully booked. Due to its popularity, we did not manage to get the suite that we wanted. So, we ended up with a family room.Furthermore, courtyard@heeren is just a few steps away Jonker Street. This is really awesome as we are there for weekend market [6-11pm] at Jonker Street. Jonker Street is located in the centre street of Chinatown. It used to sell antiques but over the years, it has turned to a bustling street that sells clothing, food and souvenirs.
