This walking guide to Melaka's UNESCO World Heritage Trial sites was quite useful.
Some of the must-see sight are as follows.

The Christ Church Melaka [Map 5]
The famous red building in Melaka, The Christ Church.

Famous photo spot in Malacca, fountain in front of Christ Church :).  You will usually see big tour group taking their group photo here.

The Stadhuys [Map 4]
Adjacent to Christ Church is Stadhuys, similar red building.

At the garden in front of both Christ church and Stadhuys, there are a number of activities for the tourists. You can choose to take photo posing on a motorbike with cool-looking guns with the nice red building as background or take a leisure ride on nicely decorated trishaws round the heritage town for about RM27.

Opposite of Stadhuys and Christ Church is the Malacca River Cruise Ferry point.  There is a stall there selling Chendol which we bought to cool down after the hot sun.

A' Famosa (Porta De Santiago - The Old Gateway) [Map 1]
A' Famosa is just besides the Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall.  You can save some walking and enjoy the aircon in the mall by taking the escalator up the second floor and get out from the glass door facing A' Famosa.

St's Paul Church [Map 3]
Be prepared for some walking up the stairs to reach Saint Paul church.

Night Scenary
After supper, we stopped by the Christ Church and Stadhuys again for some nice night scenary shots. Experience the peaceful ambience which is definitely different from the hustle and bustle during the day.

You can also choose to take the river cruise or just walk along to Malacca river to enjoy the lightings and nice peaceful scenary.
