Interesting architecture

Its a nice place to walk around and get a feel for the mixed heritage of Malaysia. Definitely something to see in Malacca!

Interesting for the architecture and for people watching, but hardly a must-see in Melaka. Walk through on your way elsewhere.

It's interesting for portugueses people. There are people talking as portuguese were talking 500 years ago. I wouldn't reccomend for others but, for portugueses, it's a must:)

We wandered down here from our hotel. The square is full of restaurants and their is also a nice walk along the seawall. We ended up eating at one of the restaurants where I had a delicious fish.

See the historical place and learn about our past. The wide range of restaurant available and the various type of local foods is an experience to be savioured. Hanging round the beach front can be very relaxing
