Not much crowded as one would expect.. N not a big square.. Jonker street is just across the bridge.. You can find few small shops selling varied stuffs at Red square. Better to shop in Jonker street then here..

Definitely one of the iconic landmarks of Melaka. Plenty of history. However photo taking experience might not be that great due to the endless amount of tourists.
