“Pretty church too crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Melaka (or Malacca) is about three hours drive from Kuala Lumpur and makes an interesting day trip.
The red Christ church is pretty but there are always too many people around. I managed to get a couple of decent photos from a window on the first floor of the museum next door.

“Best :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Whevener I saw brochure or travel photos about Melaka, the Christ Church building comes at first. The building is very nice, very old and full of historical story. There's an information about Christ Church on the front left of the building. Close to another major tourist attractions such as Stadhuys and a Famosa fort.

“Historic church to impress tourist”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Good to see an old church still busy and used. Too crowded to take picture. Good place to catch tourist's first visit.

“Very old and well-maintained church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The church is more than 250 years old, but is in a very good condition and very well maintained. However, being one of the key tourist attractions, the surroundings are filled with souvenir shops and trishaws. We went there on a Sunday morning, and the place was buzzing with crowd. Suggest a quieter part of the day/week for a better experience.

“Its in the tourist Area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

You cannot miss this as its right bang in the tourist area, we did not go inside as it was locked, we had a look and a wonder around outside. Its near the clock tower and victoria fountain. So if you are in the area, this is another photo opportunity
