It is a building that does not even look old and is painted red, you don't go inside and the best thing about it is the colourful tricycles for hire out the front RM5 will give a good photo opportunity

This is one of the most history and iconic place in Malacca. The red historical building is a beautiful place to visit and to be photograph with.

Visited the Dutch Square on 30 April to 3 May 2015. Because its a long holiday for Malaysian , the square was packed with people,both local and Chinese. Its a must see for Melaka visitors , and its said that you haven't visited Melaka ,if you haven't visit the Dutch Square. Many Landmarks considered as an iconic landmark of Melaka... More

This historic spot is a must see for travelers visiting Malacca. The space is full of bustling people and interested tourists taking pictures. It is surrounded by important buildings and St Paul hill.

get out of your car, walk around there and find out what the story behind the look. Historical Building, Chruch, Foutain, Camels with vivid decoration and many things wait you to shoot them.
