Abstract: This paper explores linkages between tourism, space and power, in order to explore how these aspects relate to peoples’ spatial practices. Using a diachronic approach to tourism, this paper argues that in order to understand tourism phenomenon we cannot do without three intertwined categories: time, space and power. Indeed, understanding spaces of tourism is closely related with depicting their multiple layers of fabric weaved through the passing of time. Based on ethnographic research (Pires 2012), empirical focus is focused in analysing practices of production and appropriation of space in Malacca (West Malaysia).
