Christ Church and the Stadthuys, Malacca, Malaysia

A trip to Malacca would not be complete without a visit to the Stadthuys, a.k.a the Red House among the locals.

Queen Victoria’s fountain- perhaps the only relic left by the British in this heritage site that is predominantly influenced by the Dutch.

Red Clock Tower
Red Clock Tower, a.k.a. Tan Beng Swee Clock Tower, was bequeathed to the people of Malacca. The Clock Tower was painted red for it to blend in with the rest of the Dutch relics, maybe? 🙂
Dutch Square
Trishaws adorned with plastic flowers are peppered throughout Malacca. Quite a number are concentrated in this touristy area, though.
