  • Guess it is a must visit for tourist to capture some photo moments. From here you can also explore St Paul's hill.

  • The square is quite picturesque with colonial style buildings all painted bright red, they are worth seeing.

  • Nice surroundings. Great place to take some pictures and appreciate the colonial architecture. A lot of areas to sit and gain new perspective on the square including near the fountain and surrounding areas. Food and merchandise stalls are available adjacent to the square. I had hoped for more historical information as both the Church and the buildings are not accessible to visitors during the time of visit. Definitely the highlight of Melaka and a Must-Visit.
  • The historical square of Malacca, containing all the remnants of the colonial days. It is very well kept by the State government. Stadhuys, Christ Church, Victoria Water Fountain, the Clock Tower, Bastion Middleburgh are all located here, within walking distance. It is very happening especially at night and on the weekend. Jonker street is just across the bridge over the Melaka river.
