Sights & Museums

The Stadthuys

Red Square

Dutch Square is another popular name for the Malacca Town Square. It is said to have been built in the middle of the 17th century, as the office of the Dutch Governor and Deputy Governor and is believed to be the oldest Dutch building in the east. It features salmon red walls, because of that, in recent years, the Dutch Square has also been called the Red Square.

Here you'll find the Trishaw Rides. They are the best way to enjoy Malacca in a slow and laid back manner, and can be rented on hourly or distance covered basis.
