This is the iconic part of Melaka. The heavily decorated Trishaws make the place colourful. In the day, there are lots of 'hawkers' who sell their wares around the area - lots of souvenirs, tee-shirts. The Church sells souvenirs too and the money collected goes into the Church Fund - it costs a lot less to buy a souvenir from... More

Oh the air, it's so fresh, except it isn't. Especially in this place, where it's considered the "center" of Melaka where almost all the touristy places are located. Which means it's congested to the limit if you are visiting during the holidays. Seriously, the government here NEEDS to close the entire area down and only let public transport to enter... More

To be honest, nothing special for this attraction. However, most of the attractions are next to each other, so if you pass by, just take a photo.

Originally named the Dutch reformed Church, the building bears all the landmarks of 18th century Dutch Architecture. Each of the 15 meter long roof beams are carved from a single tree.There are no aisles or chancel but there is an exquisite replica of the Last Supper in glazed tiles.Like most European Churches in those days, the floors are paved and...

去过马来西亚两次,一直很喜欢他们的海滩,去年的旅行决定去马六甲,终于发现有文化底蕴的地方了。红教堂我们没有进去,只是在外面照照相,人很多。 It is a culture spot ,we just took few photos, didn't enter the church, but nice architect and unique building in the surrounding area.

It is plainly decorated inside with white-washed walls. Trisha drivers clog up the road infront, ringing their bells to get your attention. The... More

Speechless. Impressed and stunned with the architecture. Make a round turn and feel that you're in those days back to 18 centuries

is a must to see. The Square is too crowded with stalls and Trishas with loud music. The place should be more quite.
