Beautiful fountain if you can see at night with the fountain on. and if the place is not too crowded. But be careful with the wild birds...

This is the busiest and most crowded part of the Dutch Square because of tourist having their photos taken beside Queen Victoria's Fountain! With the large crowd always hanging around to take photos, its so hard to take perfect photos without photo bombers lurking around! You have to be patient and wait for your turn and perfect time to capture... More

Crowded during public holiday and hard to take photos. If the sun is out during afternoon you should be able to take a good photo facing towards the road. The bus 17 from Melaka Sentral stops here.

There are too crowded around the fountain. It is hard to take a photo without other people photobombing. They usually sit around the fountain.

This fountain is in the vicinity of the Stadthuys so no need for any transport. You can easily walk here, buying souvenirs along the way. A great place for the photo op!

An interesting fountain and surrounding square. Very well preserved/restored. Nice landscaping and impressive surrounding buildings. But the rickshaws...they completely ruin the atmosphere. These pimped-up trishaws blasting some type of pop music have got to go. Personally, I think their presence is tacky and not keeping with any sense of Melaka's rich history. Rickshaws are fine, just not their cartoon-like counterparts... More

One of the more unique place in Malacca for photo taking. Pretty busy over that area as it's near Jonker street but still a beautiful fountain, well mantainced.

Place to check out with all around views and plenty to see and do in this area. The area is full of history about malacca and is spread over a wide area, .
