Like others have stated this is a must see just for the view. Price is quite reasonable and it isn't overcrowded so you get to take in the full experience and get a unique perspective of this beautiful city

I don;t like heights but this seemed to be too good to miss. It is the first time I have seen such a ride and I liked it better than the ferris wheel type ride in Brisbane and other cities, because there is no framework to get in the way of the view. As it rises, it rotates you also... More

First I didn't interesting to go up cause the ticket price was expensive (for me), RM20 for 10 minutes ride. But I change my mind cause this is one of you must to do when visiting Melaka. And I'm not disappointed at all.... We going up slowly and when reach the top, the tower rotated for 3 or 4 times... More

It was exciting to go up into the Taming Sari Tower which was built to replicate the legendary Laksamana Hang Tuah's keris. The journey brought you up and then the tower rotated giving you a bird's eye view of the city and also the Straits of Malacca. It was a fun ride and definitely worth trying

The ride gives you a great view of the entire city including the Melaka straits, beaches, old town, and the developing area around Melaka. The approximately 10 minute ride is very comfortable, it costs 10 RM per person and although we did it mid day, sunset or early evenings would be the most appropriate time.

Went there happily to see Melaka's view from above, but the ticket selling lady wasn't very pleasant. She insisted a 1 Year 10 Months boy to be 2 Years Old even after showing his MyKid, she insist of charging, arguing baby s age is based on birth year not birthday, which is ridiculous. It ruined our experience. But the view... More

The 7 minutes of seeing malacca at 360 degrees is all worth it. I got to go during the night and it was nice seeing all the lights but I think it would be best to see it during the day so you can see a better view of all the attractions

Your trip to Melaka would be incomplete without experiencing the ride ar the Menara Taming Sari. The price you pay is totally worth it for the majestic view of the city which includes the straits, sea, beach, gardens and the entire Melaka landscape. The 15 minute ride is very comfortable and the plus point is that you don't have to... More
