  • Great historical sites with glimpses of dutch culture and history. Red red everywhere. Must visit spot when in melaka.
  • This historical site is located right in the heart of Melaka Historical City. Numerous Dutch and British historical buildings are located around this location. The night views are beautiful too. A boat terminal serving the Melaka River Cruise is also located nearby. The Night Melaka River Cruise is highly recommended. On the weekends, there is a beautiful night market in the nearby renowned Jonker Walk. Nearby here, there are numerous restaurants and food stalls serving authentic Baba Nyonya and local foods. There are also numerous souvenir stalls. A haven for souvenir hunters. Overall it is a place that brings you back in time and also gives you a modern feeling too..
