    Inside the vicinity is an extensive collection of the artist’s contemporary paintings (all for sale) as well as reasonably priced, funky and one-of-a-kind tee shirts that are extremely popular souvenirs. Due to its popularity amongst tourists and locals alike, Orang Utan House has several outlets throughout Malacca.
