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.

Visiting Melaka's red square is a treat to history, culture and art lovers. It gives a glimpse of the colonial life matched with the traditional Malaysian ways. The colorful structures seem to reflect the life of its people.
