One of the attraction that you won't missed. Nothing much from the square. There are some stalls opening and a lot of colourful trishaw. that is one of the highlight. You can pay to ride on the trishaw and move around the city.

This square is what helps make Malacca such an important city. It shows the Dutch and Portuguese influence in the history of Malacca. There are many red buildings which makes it quite unique. Definitely a must see in Melaka.
