  • This is a really colorful place. Ideal for photography and there are lots of people posing around. Majority of the tourist attractions and must see sights in Melaka are right around here. The colorfully decorated bicycle rickshaws are a lively addition especially with their loud music. What I enjoyed most just sitting in a corner and just watching all the activity around me.
  • Windmill Dutch Square Melaka is an enchanting place with lot of historical buildings surrounding it and a water channel running on its one side. The square is made even more beautiful by the opulently-decorated tricycles waiting for the tourists. There are some shops selling souvenirs. Start exploring this quaint historical town from this square and you are off with a flying start.
