This is an interesting place to see a kampung or village of houses that are absolutely charming. Many of the houses are made of wood, and one of them is actually a "museum" (which was unfortunately closed when we were there). However, many of the houses have become "homestays" while others were selling drinks, cookies or ice-cream. That's the sign of commercialism.
Nevertheless, a stroll around the kampung brings about a different feel of Malacca, compared to visits to the malls. One side of the kampung actually is the embankment the river, which adds to the ambience. Kampung Morten is a small compact area that would take no more than 1-2 hours to visit.
