Night at a Malay
Tailored to your desires
The Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman is one of the oldest surviving traditional Malay house. Built in stages between 1910 and early 1930s, it was owned by the local headman of Mukim Bagan Samak in Bandar Baharu, Kedah. Originally situated in the small village of Kampung Sungai Kechil, it was relocated to central Kuala Lumpur and restored (1996-1997).
Today, it stands as one of the finest remaining examples of Malay vernacular architecture. The Rumah (‘house’ in Malay language) is surrounded by a traditional herb & heritage garden with over 50 species of trees and plants of environmental, cultural and historic interest.
Asian Trails Malaysia is providing an experience of a night at the headman house at a sit-down dinner for up to 180 pax.
