You cant miss this attraction when in Melaka. Accessible and free. Christ church has an English mass at 8:30 am. Infront of the church is Queen Victorias' fountain.

This charming place has a life of it's own. The place was buzzing with tourist but not an overwhelming crowd. As I walk around I'm just astounded with the beauty of the old fashioned infrastructure. I would definitely come back here for another visit.

We sat on a wall and watched the people and the interaction with each other. It was interesting to watch the traffic and see people going across the road. Lots of young people in groups in this area catching up and chatting.

Colorful pink (red?) buildings around here gave us "exotic" feeling. We enjoyed observing people traveling from around the world, too.

ok: since you are here have a look, but this would be a normal square in europe, in malaysia (expecially after a long trip) the effect is different and you'll appreciate it!
