Nice square! You need to go there if you're in Melaka. Beautiful place & friendly people. Get yourself a cold drink then walk & check around the city!!!

The square is very beautiful, although at times it can get crowded. Still, I enjoyed sitting there for some time, and anyway, it is near everything else one wants to see in Melaka.

Interesting place to walk through. Stalls selling handicrafts etc, brightly coloured trishaws you can ride on, people galore, fantastic church with free entry to look at, historical museum up the steps, coffee and restaurants close by. Definitely worth having a look at.

If you can't tolerate crowds, noise or traffic give this location a pass. It was super busy in sunny 32 degree weather. The decorated trishaws playing loud music was reminiscent of a carnival, the lines of tour buses and cars made crossing the street a...More

A historical place that has lost the plot. Before the influx of tourist it was a great place to visit & spend some time. Admire the architecture. Soak in the atmosphere. Sadly now its packed with vendors & trishaws playing loud crappy music. Perpetually crowded...More
