Unforgettable stay in colonial townMelaka (Malacca) is one of the most picturesque towns in Malaysia. Old historical buildings in the city center are listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site. I was lucky to find accommodation in a more than 100 years old but carefully restored Chinese house which is situated right in the old part of town. The tasteful rooms, corridors and inviting restaurant are full of old furniture which reflect authenticity of colonial and old Chinese (Peranakan) style. All of the rooms have great views of the river and colonial buildings on the other side. And in the restaurant guests could taste and feel the glorious past through traditional food. Fish, prawns, vegetables, chicken... prepared in a unique way are delicious! Ask for fresh juicies too...
