The highlight of visiting the charming Malay village of Kampung Morten is this living museum within a 1920s kampung (village) house. Visitors (or rather, guests) are welcomed by a member of the household who points out period objects, including photographs of family members. The name of the house means 'Peace and Prosperity'.
