Owner description: The Malacca Heritage Centre is a place untouched by time, where a unique heritage has been meticulously maintained. A museum that is still a family and ancestral home, it is filled with the objects and spirit of the Peranakan culture of Malacca, as it has been for more than a hundred years.

I used to listen to stories of the galleon trades in my Asian history classes and coming to this place gave me such a thrill to experience the traces of these stories. I have been to this place twice and in my last visit in April 2012, I witnessed the Holy Week commemoration of the Christian community in this predominantly Islamic city. Such an example of a peaceful integration of different faiths. Rightfully esteemed to be a world heritage due to its living multi-cultural influences of the East and the West.

The quickest and most affordable option for a Malacca Heriage Centre tour is by their Rickshaw...a tri-bike with sounds, flowers and colorful designs. haggle for a 40RM one-hour trip. One rickshaw is good for 2 pax. From Melaka Central, you may take Bus 17 to the Heritage Centre for about 2RM per person. Or if you are a group of 4, you may opt to take a cab - cheaper and faster. Remember that traffic was terrible especially at 4pm onwards. So if you need to catch a bus at Melaka Sentral, take a cab and not the bus!

Melaka is best experienced on weekend nights because they have night markets. But be sure to visit this place on non-ramadan season, so they have more activities and night markets to see.

souvenirs are cheaper at the jonker street....

it is also nice to bring home a sketch of the place. We bought one for 50RM. the malaysian girl was really good at sketching near the Malaka river.

look for maps of melaka at the central station. you can eat at a restaurant and ask for maps.

Some people in melaka are good in Filipino. great people!

Beautiful place with very neatly maintained its old heritage. We had a very informative and nice river ride showing us the entire city from center to the Malacca Bay. It is a World Heritage city and so the houses, ship and the ruins are preserved to speak for it. Restaurants serve authentic and sumptuous Chinese and Malaysian food. And there is Dodol, the local sweet stuff (try a little). The Sky ride was also very delightful giving us panoramic view of entire Malacca.
