Had a day tour to Melaca and enjoyed the downtown tour focusing on the Portuguese and Durch history which is still very dominant allover in old town…

Very touristy and difficult to enjoy without traffic, trishaws blaring out music, or masses of people. Supposedly where the heritage is in this UNESCO city, and it is easy to walk to the Foer or to Jonkers Street from here.

The top must-see place in Malacca, but unfortunately that can only mean that it becomes touristy..... but the historic value of this place means it's a cannot-miss attraction, and besides, it's free

Unbelievable how busy this area is in the city of Melaka. This is where the junction for the busy shopping street and evening market- Jonker St. is located. Starting at the Victorian Fountain, the historical buildings here are all brick red. There are many small souvenir stands around here as well as many rental trishaws parked along the road - a popular way to see the sights in Melaka while the driver of the trishaw plays loud music. The trishaws are colorful and decorated with many cartoon characters such as the Minions, Hello Kitty, Picachu, Spiderman, etc. Across the street are many colorful cow statues and a picturesque windmill. Well worth a stop here to see all the action in Melaka!

The Red or Dutch Square is surrounded by buildings painted in red, which gives rise to its popular name Red Square. Stadthuys, Clock Tower, Malacca River, Christ Church, Queen Victoria Fountain and Street Art are all in the same area.

Red Square, with its preponderance of red coloured buildings, narrow pathways & several points of historical interest, evokes memories of the past when Malacca was ruled by the Dutch. A great place for traipsing around and clicking selfies / photos.

Must visit for tourists to see the red buildings here. Just a stone throw away from Jonker street. And next to the river.

Combine your trip to spend the whole day here try the watermelon 🍉 juice straight from the fruit!!! Great experience
