The next morning, we had breakfast in the hotel as the stay includes breakfast.

After breakfast, we walked to the Red Square area again. This time we followed a group of tourists to the Malacca Fort.

This reconstructed Middleburg Bastion was constructed by the Dutch around 1660. It provided extra security to the port and Malacca River.
