Great efforts been placed to ensure those attractions in this place are well preserved. Besides the Christchurch and the Stadthuys, the other snapping worthy would be those colorful trickshaws.

The buildings around here are lovely. They have been well preserved. It is a good area for souvenirs or to get on one of the trishaws for a tour around.

The red square is pretty even if quite small. You can enjoy mixed watermelon drink or the local ice cream. The whole visit won't take you longer than 1 hour or 2 if you really want spend more time just enjoying the view.

Continue to walk through historical jonker walk way. Then you'll be welcomed by unique red beautiful structures. Yes now you will be seeing the historical dutch square so called red square. Walk through the length and breadth of the square because each section is unique. If you are exhausted you can relax under trees. Or step into the heritage church.... More

Fascinating to see such a well preserved area, it's a credit to the Malaysian people that so much effort has been put into preserving this piece of their colonial past.

Malacca is a lovely and historical city. Red Square can prove to you that the city has many history behind. Many museums around it. Really in love with their trishaw services. Around through the Red Square, Quay Side and Jonker Street is a popular place to take nice photos.

There are plenty of photos to be taken here. Just a street across you can walk to jonker street and explore the many shops there. Do bring a cap or an umbrella if you are dropping by in the morning or afternoon as the heat in malacca is pretty scary.
