“Need to go in Melaka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

This place is super good.
It's right on the bus stop so it's very easy to visit.
You should go early in the morning so as to take good picture. From around 10 a.m, this place is quite crowded and hard to take good picture with so much people. The architecture is nothing to say, super beautiful.
Across the street, there is famous place selling cendol and ice cream, which you should try when coming to Malaysia. It's very cheap and the sellers are so nice.
Dont buy souvenirs around this place cause it's quite expensive. You can have a bargain in market.
At this place, u can also find colorful transportation (I dont know its name). The driver will take you go to some attractions in Melaka.

“Simply a landmark in Melaka”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Definitely need to visit it and take a photo of this landmark in this ancient city. You can never find such sharp colour church in other places. I have been there for at least 5 times but still not tired of ti. Why? Just want to see if any changes year by year. However, this is ME who become old and older and the Red Square is kept still the same as the first time I met it. Time passes.............
