Visiting Melaka's red square is a treat to history, culture and art lovers. It gives a glimpse of the colonial life matched with the traditional Malaysian ways. The colorful structures seem to reflect the life of its people.

If you are a first time visitor to Malacca, you should visit this area to get a good sense of what made malacca a powerful sultante in the early days and an impt colonial outpost.

Good place to take pictures and do look out for the horse carriages and also the trishaws that are overly decorated with soft toys. Super flamboyant but quite cheap.
