Top 15 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Malacca, Malaysia - Updated 2021

airbnb Malacca, Malaysia

Malacca is one of the most well known historic towns in Malaysia. Its distinctive culture has been shaped by the Malay natives, settlers and traders from China, India and the Arabian states, as well as controversial periods of colonial influence. While Malacca is not a particularly large town, you’ll spend hours wandering through streets filled with vibrant street art and architectural gems. The co-existence of different religious and ethnic influences also means you’ll try mouthwatering dishes of varied cuisines and marvel at beautiful mosques just opposite the road from Buddhist and Hindu temples. There are plenty of incredible independent boutiques, antique collectors and traditional stalls, and of course, the Jonker Market where you’ll find a dizzying array of street food, souvenirs and crafts on display. Malacca is frequented by locals and residents of nearby Singapore on weekends and makes for one of the most popular spots on a South East Asia tour so accommodation options may be limited during peak periods. If you’re planning a trip, do keep this list of top Airbnb vacation rentals in Malacca in mind!

The breezy balcony upstairs also provides wonderful views of the nearby river. From the guest home, a short walk will take you to nearby historic sites and many dining options.
