Taste of the local
Aug 2020
Kampung Morten or simply Morten Village is a historical traditional Malay village in the city which is situated near the Malacca River. It is named after a British land revenue collector, Frederick Joseph Morten during the British Malaya. Here is where tourist can get a taste of the local culture. Take the river cruise at night to see lights lighting the village. There is also a local house turned into a museum located inside the village. For those who want to get a better idea, do the village walking tour. My husband and I rented a motorcycle to get around the village because it's easier. To enter the village is free.

Do the village walking tour
Dec 2019 • Couples
A very informative exploration of houses, gardens and residents.
At least as good as the Baba and Nyonya house, and much more personalised.
Currently only on Saturdays at 5pm.
Check at the tourist office in town for any updates.
The tour is nominally free, but a generous tip is appropriate.
Our excellent enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide was called Mimi.

Not bad for night walk
Dec 2019 • Friends
It's a residential area well decorated with lights, displaying architecture fusion as traditional houses in the midst of city centre. Located beside Malacca river. You will always see mesmerizing decorating lights on river cruise boats, trees, houses, bridge, along the river. Good spot for night walk and photo shooting.

Cultural and Heritage Tour of the Village
Nov 2019 • Couples
Ask at Tourist Information and they will tell you about the free tours available. We did 2, one of which was Kampung Morton which lasted 1.5hrs and starts at 5pm in the village. We had a charming and knowledgeable guide. She took us through the streets and had permission to enter gardens to show us local herbs and produce growing. We were told about the construction of a typical Malay house and was able to go inside a house- pre arranged by the guide with the resident. She showed us a workspace of a local craftsman who makes model houses ( these are not for sale so it’s not a promotional trip trying to part you from your cash) and finally we ended at the local street restaurant who reputedly sells the best Nasi Lemak around. We did tip our guide but this is an interesting tour and represents great value. I can’t find it itemised separately on Trip Advisor but go to the tourist office.

Walk for an hour
Oct 2019
Older style housing surrounded by high rise. Nice local neighbourhood in a handy central location for tourists. The river winds around on one side and at night there is a monorail making circuits of the estate

Lovely to see...

Really lovely to walk to along the river, and lots of pride and care in the residences of Kampung Morten. There are some really lovely homes and the people kind.

STYLISH FEATURE VILLAGE
May 2019 • Couples
We stayed at The Majestic which is located opposite Kampung Morten so we would often use the riverside walk through the Kampung to get to the centre of town. What a lovely location where people are obviously proud to live, very interesting to wander through and look out for the large Monitor Lizards in the
river.

A little disappointed
May 2019 • Couples
We walked here having read in a Lonely Planet Guide that there were walking tours at 4pm every Mon, Wed and Fri. Unfortunately no-one showed up at the allotted time so we self guided. I have to say that I was underwhelmed - perhaps it would have been better had someone been able to provide some information on the history of the houses. The walk from Dutch Square along the river is okay.... spoilt a little by the smelly drains and rubbish by the vacant properties.

Lovely walk along the river
Feb 2019 • Friends
Clean and cool this is a lovely walk through history and along the river. It was a very hot day but once you are near the water it cools down a bit. Beautiful flowers and plants to see along the way.
