Very crowded with tourists from everywhere. Gift shops and lots of rickshaws for hire. 50 ringits and well worth it. So much fun.

Central place for everything. All attractions are around this square. Shops selling souvenirs and food stuffs also around. Mind the traffic when crossing the road. Tri Shaws are around here and can be hired to go around the tourist places. Lots of opportunities for photos.

At night this place will be buzzing with trishaw riders. You can pay them to send you to your hotel if it's within the area. Quite pricy but worth every penny of the experience.

This little, reddish, sunny, happy, multicolored square, reminds you of Disneyland, maybe, but then again, Disneyland had maybe copied this particular square, from Malaysia, from Melaka (or Malaga) for its own design! This part of Melaka is all ornated with deep red color. It is...More
