The square is central to most sights and museums. As long as your legs work just walk. However the colourful bicycles and their blaring music will fit the bill but only visit a limited area. Taxis are not on meters, make sure you decide in advance what the fare is. If in doubt ask the information center there what is... More

Being Dutch it is nice to be somewhere where you find some roots of history even though it is not always something to be proud of although, what was in those days? Melaka is full of life and the centre of this life you find on the red square with the great musical bikes with nice guides (over priced though).... More

It's a shame if you miss it,lol. Start with the windmill, then the church, the clock tower, the 'I love Malacca' signage, the standhuys. It's a very interesting spot, dominated in red color. The only annoying thing is the super loud music from the becak.
