Tour the Traditional Malay Wooden House

Rumah Melayu (Malay House), are traditional dwellings, originating before the arrival of foreign or modern influences, and constructed by the indigenous ethnic Malay of the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo, made of timber and wood.

There are not many around anymore, as Malaysia is heading towards becoming a modern society. Most of the Malay Wooden House are only in the deep rural areas. We are lucky that 35 km away from the big city of Kuala Lumpur, these Malay wooden houses still exist, so tourists are welcomed to come in and see how the local kampung people live :)
