A very touristy area and a good chance to take nice photos! The iconic red color of the buildings surrounding this square is a sight to behold. A good start to know more about the town of Melaka.

It was a nice place to visit but overcrowded and people don't stop shouting at you to buy or ride their tuktuk even if ou said no many times. But the place is a must visit in mellaca because its a Portuguese old city

Happened to pass by, entire red buildings. If you are someone who loves heritage building structures, you will love this. Quite similar to Macau’s street.

For people who loves to experience and explore a little historical site, this is a great place to check out. A short break from shopping or work would be a good stop over.

The atmosphere was very welcoming and it was also very unique to see all the red buildings! We took a lot of photos and they all turned out great! The only downside is that there are a lot of people there.
