Dutch Square (Red Square) Malacca (Melaka)
Dutch Square (Red Square)
Red painted buildings surround Dutch Square, which is why another name for Dutch Square is Red Square. This area reflects the history of Melaka, historic buildings from the Dutch administration such as Stadthuys, Christ Church, the British colonization such as Queen Victoria’s Fountain, and the Chinese settlers such as Tan Beng Swee Clock Tower in honour of a generous Chinese tycoon. The Portuguese traces remain at A Famosa. We can see some ruins of a Portuguese fortress on the bank of River Melaka across the Square.
What you will like about Red Square (Dutch Square) is the atmosphere, like a carnival square where we will get many tourists from locals and oversea overseas tourists, including Singapore, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, European and America. The hustle and bustle of the tourists posing and snapping photos; those souvenir shops crowded with souvenir hunters. We will get a lot of vibrant, colourful trishaws enticing tourists with blaring hit songs.
