It's a small square which looks good. A good place to take pictures. also has lots of tree surrounding it. usually crowded as there are many tour buses around the location.

From the top of St.Paul Ruins, I could see the tip of the Melaka icon- yes the Christ Church aka red square. All it took was a brisk walk down and making our way to the entrance. Unfortunately, it was closed on a Friday, so we could not view the inside, we relaxed for a while by the fountain, before... More

It's a small square with interesting structures around that you could visit for a few minutes. It's a great place for photoshots and selfies -- just make sure you're there early before the tour buses arrive with many tourists flocking in the area. When I was there, there were maintenance and repairs ongoing. It's expected considering that the entire city... More

We were pleased that the roadworks are finished and love the fresh look of the bricks that they used, this is always a must for us as my wife's parents had their wedding pictures taken here as her mother was born in malacca and survived the Japanese to meet and marry her father before emigrating to England

Nice views, but very small. Adjacent to a busy road. Probably never gonna happen but they should change that by making a big square. There are a lot of riksja's. Off course they ask if you want to ride but they are not pushy. It is funny to see that they all went all out on decoration of the riksja... More

If you visit Melaka, then you must visit this as this is a landmark of Melaka. In other words, just one picture at this place and people will know that you visited Melaka. If you love history, then you must visit this place and imagine how it would have been 300 years ago. It's on a small hill and a... More

Red building is one of the nice historical place to let the kids 'experience' the story of Malacca from the book to the real view.

Nice place for sitting and take a picture here. You can feel the sense of historical landamark. But there's very little information about this place. And when i came there at August 2015, there's is road works and it really disturbs the sightseeing with all the dust around. But overall. It is must place to see in Malaka
