  • This is a must go attraction you should visit during your stay in Melaka. This is a great piece of history about Melaka. The place is also amazing for taking photos  more »
  • I have to say that the square is a bit like the city of Malacca nice but nothing exceptional. It is a small square with some stalls, the inscription I love Melaka to take some photos, the church.

  • The square is fairly small but is very picturesque. If it's not too hot, take a stroll down the side of water. It's very close to Jonker street. Plan your trip for a Friday, Saturday or Sunday to catch the night market.
  • The best place to be if you are visiting Malacca. Many tourists gather around the clock tower. The iconic red buildings, and the windmill represent the Dutch history in Malacca.
