  • 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.

  • 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.
