This spot was like a centre of Melaka City. Take Panorama bus no 17 from Melaka Central Bus Station to access this place. Many tourist during holiday season, so better visited in the morning.

How good or bad can a square be. Surprised that there is even a place to review a square like this. Not a tourist attraction but one of the busy places after Jonker street.

A lovely welcome to Melaka, with its pink facade making it stand out in a popular square just outside Jonkers Walk. Can get super busy with tourist buses turning up so pick your time wisely for a lovely momento photo
