Busy and bustling dutch quarter that is worth a visit. It's close to Jonker Street and it's worth exploring some of the side streets

Melacca is an old city with friendly residents. Before going to the famous Dutch Square, St Paul's Church, St Francis Xaviour Church etc, by bus, I wanted to go to the lavatory ... but out of my expectation, I needed to pay RM0.30 every time....More

For someone who lives in the Netherlands it was funny coming across some old Dutch colonial buildings in Melaka. There were some names in Dutch (albeit old Dutch from the Middle Ages but still).

this was one of the places where a lot of tourists converge to take photos and selfies, interesting place with museums around to learn about the history of the place.

Good place to visit. The monument is impressive and the red colour makes the building more interesting. The fountain nearby is also nice. Good spot to take pictures and selfies. Around you have the 3 wheels cars with funny decorations to drive you anywhere around.

Nice to see old buildings and lots of activities for tourists or locals. Many historical sites and views to take pictures. Souvenirs are sold at reasonable prices.

It’s the center of attractions such as the church, windmill, clock tower and Jonker street. It has a nice atmosphere in the evenings although it is sort of crowded with tourists. Hence, taking pics can be frustrating.

Makes a nice photo and worth checking out. It’s hard not to miss this square if visiting Melaka, but there will always be people, funky bikes and stalls around. Check it out if in the city.

Red Square (Dutch Square) is an area. So it's FOC. But if you wanna go inside the building (e.g. The Stadthuys) the entrance fees are as follows: Adult (local) - RM5 Adult (foreigner) - RM10 Child (local) - RM2 Child... More
