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!
This guest home is located in a well-preserved house right in the center of Malacca’s UNESCO World Heritage Zone. There’s ample space for up to six guests given that the house contains one king sized bed and two queen-sized beds. Moreover, the kitchen is well equipped and there are two clean bathrooms. 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.

The serviced condo is found right in the heart of Malacca where you can easily walk to historical attractions. Right across the road are the Dataran Pahlawan Mall and the Mahkota Parade. The apartment is a part of a hotel, which means that after a long day, you have access to the pool; or perhaps, you may choose to stretch those muscles and have a workout in the gym. If neither suits your preference, you may also choose just relax and watch television, or go online and browse with the wifi connectivity that is provided. The famous Jonker Street is within walking distance as well. Your host is friendly and quick to assist with queries.
