To avoid too crowded and too commercial, I had been there early in the morning, just a few tourists there and none of the stall been open. I enjoy the historical ford and the nice scenery under the early sunlight~~

Not a steep climb. When we reached red square and asked for route to St. Paul's hill, a local shopkeeper directed us to cordonned off entrance to Stadhuys. We were hesitant to enter it. It later turned out to be a very easy approach to the top of St Paul's hill. It is not really a hill, just a small mound.

Visited on 10 Novermber 2013. Good time to visit is 8AM to 9AM when there will be lesser crowd. It was drizzling when we visited and there weren't many tourists around at that time.

My wife and I had a chance to tour the old city areas during a visit. The St Paul ruins gave a nice place to visit with a great view and a really nice hike up the hill. The church has lots of tombstone inscriptions inside the shell of the building in old English and other languages. The hike and the view made it one of our favorite places to visit - the humidity notwithstanding.

A lot of the architecture in Melaka is really beautiful and well worth seeing and photographing. St Paul's just felt a little excessively touristy and over rated. All around the area are stalls selling tshirts and key rings and it just felt a little bit like they were taking advantage of an area that could be a lot more attractive if it weren't for all the tables full of rubbish and people chanting about what they are selling! We were slightly let down by this UNESCO heritage site to be honest! It is pretty though.
