In the middle of town is this landmark called Stadthuys. It is a bright red 17th-century building and was the seat of the Dutch administration. It is now a museum giving an insight to the history of Melaka.
You see the buildings and you would imagine yourself in some European or latin country … but you look closer and see the shops around you selling Asian items then you remember you are in non other than Malaysia.

After taking your lunch upon reaching Melaka, I suggest you take the river cruise first near the Stadhuys. Then you take a short taxi ride to Masjid Selat Melaka. After that, you can drop by Menara Taming Sari. A short walk away you will reach Stadhuys (red building). Jonker Street is just over the bridge near the Stadhuys. Do go on weekends foe the crowd & fun in Jonker Street.
