Photographer's Note

Dutch Square in Melaka is surrounded by red painted buildings, hence it's nickname of Red Square.

The square reflects the history of Melaka: the Dutch administration (the Stadthuys, Christ Church), the British colonization (Queen Victoria’s Fountain), and the Chinese settlers (Tan Beng Swee Clock Tower built in honour of a generous Chinese tycoon). Within striking distance on the banks of the Melaka River lies A Formosa, a ruined fortress originally built by the Portuguese.

The centrepiece of Old Malacca, it is popular with locals and tourists who come to take pictures and hire one of the many trishaws.
